I am a research associate in the Electrochemical Science and Engineering group, where I develop mathematical models based on key transport and electrochemical phenomena to describe the operation of electrochemical energy storage systems. Currently, I am working on on the modelling of regenerative hydrogen-vanadium and hydrogen-manganese fuel cells.

I was born in Chile, where I studied at Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering and a Master’s degree in Mineral Processing. My PhD in the Electrochemical Science and Engineering group improved our capability to model flow batteries and our understanding of the key phenomena in flow systems.
