Ainara is a Reader in Energy Materials. Her research focuses on the optimisation of ion and electron dynamics in  complex oxides, bulk surfaces and interfaces to improve the efficiency, capabilities and cycle life of  of solid state electrochemical devices such as  batteries,  fuel cells and electrolysers.  She uses a combination of structural, chemical and electrochemical analysis that involves the use of isotopic labelling coupled to electrochemical and surface analysis techniques including  in situ and  operando experiments (EP/P029914/1).  Through this she has developed new ionic materials with substantial increased in the performance than those of the current state-of-the-art. She has published over 69 (>2.5k citations h=29, i10=46)  research papers in this field and holds 1 patent on their applications.
