1999 PhD in Chemistry from the University of Valladolid, Spain
Competence and research areas
Main research interest and expertise (more than 20 years) is electrochemistry in high temperature molten salts and ionic liquids, including electrowinning, electrorefining and electrodeposition.
I have wide experience in industrial metal production processes, including aluminium, magnesium, titanium, cobalt, nickel, copper, zinc, silicon....
In the last 10 years my research is focused on the recovery of critical raw materials in metal form from secondary resources (valorization of waste streams).
