Elena Pastor Tejera
Elena Pastor Tejera works as a Professor of physical chemistry, Department of Physical Chemistry, Faculty of Chemistry, University of La Laguna, Tenerife, Spain. In 1992, she received her Ph.D. degree in chemical sciences from University of La Laguna, and, in 1993, she received her postdoctoral degree in electrochemistry from Universität Bonn, Bonn, Germany. Dr. Tejera is a Member of Real Sociedad Española de Química, Sociedad Iberoamericana de Electroquímica, International Society of Electrochemistry, Asociación Española del Hidrógeno, and Asociación Española de Pilas de Combustible. The main field of her work is electrocatalysis. She has been involved in the application of online differential electrochemical mass spectrometry (DEMS) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIRS) to study the adsorption at the metal/electrolyte interface and the characterization of adsorbed species, as well as to the elucidation of structural effects in electrocatalysis. Recently, her research has been focused on the preparation and physicochemical characterization of catalysts for low-temperature fuel cells (PEMFC, DAFC), its spectroelectrochemical characterization, and the determination of the efficiency at monocell test stations.
