SHORT SUMMARY OF SCIENTIFIC LIFE
Yolanda Ruiz Franco (Barcelona, 1986) is a chemical engineer (UAB, 2009) and PhD n Environmental Technology. The topic of her research was to gain understanding on bioelectrochemical systems for the valorization of wastewaters via an engineering approach based on experimental assays and electrochemical characterization techniques.
Yolanda’s research interests in this period were:
- Understanding the fundamentals of bioelectrochemical systems for hydrogen and electricity production from wastewaters in view of optimisation energy recovery.
- Scaling-up of bioelectrochemical systems to bridge the gap between lab and pilot scale.
