Bakgrunn og aktiviteter

My background consists of a bachelor in Chemistry and master in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology by the University of Barcelona (UB). In my master thesis I worked in the synthesis and characterization of carbon nanotubes for supercapacitor applications. Afterwards I worked in the Catalan Institute of Advanced Chemistry (ICQA) on analysis of surfactant properties. Afterwards I did an internship at the Chemistry department of NTNU where I worked in a project aiming at the development of catalyst layers for hydrogen fuel cells. Thereafter I worked in the field of process engineering in Sintef Energy focusing in heat recovery and power cycles thermodynamic optimization as well as process design for CO2 capture.
Currently I am working as a PhD candidate at the Materials Technology Department (IMA) at NTNU. The project aims at investigating scaling mechanisms from aluminium production off-gas with the future objective of applying the acquired knowledge in the design of heat exchangers that can efficiently recover heat from the off-gas while minimizing fouling issues. The work is split into an experimental part where a fouling probe will be designed and built to perform experiments in an aluminium industrial plant and a theoretical part where computational fluid dynamic's based models will be develop to simulate deposition rates that can be compared with the experiments performed.
