Ana was born in the Canary Islands, Spain. After finishing her degree in Chemistry (2004), she moved to Barcelona to conduct a PhD in Materials Science at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and the Institute of Materials Science, being awarded a Prize for an outstanding PhD thesis (2009). From 2011 to 2016 she worked as a PDRA at UCL in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Departments, where she researched metal-free energy materials for photocatalysis, batteries and water electrolysers. In 2016, she took up a position as Academic Fellow at QMUL. In 2019 Ana became a Lecturer and shortly after, Senior Lecturer in Energy Materials at QMUL. Anaâ??s group studies the design of high-performing sustainable electroactive materials using easy-to-scale processing techniques for application in energy storage and conversion. She is a member of the UK Redox Flow Battery Committee, STFC Battery Steering Committee and Director of the London Energy Materials & Devices Hub.
