ACS on Campus is excited to be heading to University of Barcelona! Join us on October 18th for an exciting day around science communication, publishing tips, and career talks! You’ll learn from ACS editors and local professionals tips and tools for publishing your research and sharing it with the public.
The event is free and open to all students and researchers studying the sciences. Registration is highly recommended.
Check back soon for program announcements.
M. Rosa Palacín, Ph.D.
Associate Editor, Chemistry of Materials
Deputy Director, Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC)
M. Rosa Palacín studied chemistry at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and received her Ph.D. in materials science for the same university. After postdoctoral research at LRCS in France under the supervision of Prof. Jean-Marie Tarascon she joined the Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona belonging to CSIC, the Spanish National Research Council being part of the research staff since 1999 and deputy director since 2014. Her research career has been fully focused in rechargeable battery materials initially either nickel based or lithium based to more recently deviate to alternative chemistries such as sodium-ion and now also calcium. Specific emphasis is set in tailoring structure and microstructure of electrode materials to maximise electrochemical performance for traditional technologies and in the development of new electrolytes for emerging technologies. She has led diverse battery research projects with either public or industrial funding and is actively involved in the direction of the ALISTORE European virtual Research Institute devoted to battery research (co-director between 2010 and 2017), and boards of International Battery Association (IBA) or IMLB.
