Lola took her degree at Complutense University of Madrid and at DTU (Denmark). She specialised in biotechnology and electrochemistry. Her Master's Thesis focused on the development of Microbial Fuel Cells for sludge treatment.
She came to the UK in 2012 to join Johnson Matthey, a catalyst company where she developed a fuel cell to produce in situ hydrogen peroxide by using water and air.
After several years working in the UK, Lola spent some time travelling to assess the water stress and wastewater management in different areas. In 2016 joined WISE to continue her work on developing innovative technologies in the water sector, mainly by using algae and electrochemistry. Her PhD focused on biosensor development for in situ monitoring of water quality and signal interpretation by using machine learning techniques.
She has authored several research papers published in top scientific journals.
In 2020 Lola joined CCell where she carries out research to understand the accretion process and optimize the rock growth and composition.
In her free time, you can find her hiking, cycling or skating.
