SHORT SUMMARY OF SCIENTIFIC LIFE
Eva Fernández Palacios (Elda, Alicante, 1991) holds a degree in Biotechnology (Universitat de Valencia, 2013) and MSc in Environmental Engineering (Universitat de Barcelona, 2015) with the thesis entitled “Forward Osmosis applied to wastewater reuse”. During her degree she did an internship in the IBV, Biomedical Institute of Valencia where she collaborated with the Structural Enzymopathology Unit. Currently, she is a PhD student in Environmental Science and Technology. Her research is focused on the achievement of a reduction-oxidation process based on sulfate-reducing microorganisms (SRB) and sulfide-oxidizing microorganisms (SOB) that allow the recovery of elemental sulphur. Along with the doctoral thesis, she is carrying out teaching tasks at the Department of Chemical Engineering in UAB where she teaches Fundamentals of Chemical Engineering in the Chemistry Bachelor’s Degree.
Eva’s current research interests are:
- Treatment process for SOx and NOx from flue gases.
- Study of the microorganisms involved in the sulfate reduction activity.
- Elemental sulfur recovery from gases with high loads of sulfate.
