Dr. Victoria Benavente Llorente will be awarded a Georg Forster Research Fellowship and join us!
17/03/2021 - Welcome, Victoria!
Dr. Benavente Llorente is getting a Georg Forster Research Fellowship for postdoctoral researchers, funded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. And she will join us in September 2021.
Victoria received her Ph.D. in Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, Argentine. During her thesis, she focused on Spectroelectrochemistry and Photoelectrochemistry of nanostructured semiconductors. Her postdoctoral research was related to the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) on Ni and NiMo composites electrodes. Victoria will investigate the degradation of α-Fe2O3 photoanodes during oxygen evolution reaction (OER) with mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). A deeper understanding of the photoelectrochemical dissolution of α-Fe2O3 is important to design strategies that prevent degradation.
We are looking forward to having you on the team!
