I am a fourth-year PhD student at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, working on redox flow batteries in Prof. Marcos Vera's research group. My research focuses on the mathematical modeling of RFBs and the experimental characterization and optimization of new electrochemical flow cell architectures.

Continuum modeling

Continuum models are crucial to predict and optimize the macroscopic behavior of electrochemical devices. Operating variables, geometry and materials can be evaluated to improve the performace and mitigate undersirable effects.

Flow cell architecture

The performance of electrochemical stacks in terms of electric and pumping power can be improved by optimizing the flow cell architecture. I work on new flow field designs and electrode configurations using 3D printing and in-situ electrochemical techniques.

Porous electrodes

Porous materials are used in a wide range of electrochemical applications. However, the role of their microstructure and spatial configuration in the cell still remains poorly understood. I study the interplay between diverse microstructures and flow cell designs.
