As Associate Professor of Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen, Dr Escudero Escribano’s research sits at the intersection of electrochemistry and material science. She works on tuning the properties of materials, aiming to develop new catalysts for renewable energy applications such as the conversion of greenhouse gases into green fuels.
“I am incredibly honored to be the 2021 Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship award winner,” Dr Escudero Escribano wrote on Twitter. “Thanks to my creative group members (past & present) and our collaborators.”
Dr Escudero Escribano is currently a Villum Young Investigator, a prestigious early-career research position for scientists at Danish institutions, as well as a co-PI of the Center of High Entropy Alloy Catalysis and the co-inventor of three patents on catalyst technology. Her new Lectureship award will be latest in a string of awards that includes the European Young Chemist Award in 2016 and the Clara Immerwahr Award in 2019.
With the Lectureship comes a trip to present at a leading international meeting, as well as an invitation to contribute an article to one of the Journal of Materials Chemistry journals with a complimentary back cover.
