Marta Sevilla Solis0000-0002-2471-2403
Marta Sevilla studied chemical engineering and acquired her Ph.D. degree in 2008 working on the development of novel carbon materials for energy storage and energy production. Afterwards, she spent two years in the University of Nottingham, UK, where she focused her research interests on the design and synthesis of porous materials for hydrogen storage. In 2011, after spending 6 months in the Max-Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, working on the development of carbon materials for gas/energy storage based on hydrothermally carbonized renewable organic substances, she was awarded with a Ramón y Cajal contract and moved back to the National Institute of Coal in Spain, where she is currently working as a Researcher. She has published over 50 publications since 2004, related to the development of novel carbon, silica, or composite materials for energy-related applications such as energy storage in supercapacitors, energy production in fuel cells (synthesis of electrocatalyst supports), carbon capture, biodiesel production, and hydrogen storage. She has also focused her research interests in the adsorption/immobilization of biomolecules, using porous materials with magnetic properties that grant them a facile separation route. She is working currently on the development of high-performance carbon materials for gas and energy storage, as well as catalysis, based on the hydrothermal carbonization process.
