He has participated and coordinated 30 national and European projects, including iMETland (awarded by Madri+d), ELECTRA (EU-China Flagship) and ATTRACT, all from the Horizon2020 programme. In 2021 he was honoured by the International Society for Microbial Electrochemistry and Technology (ISMET) with the Innovation Award for the development of the METland® technology.
In 2009, she joined Bioe as a science communicator and research support. She has been part of national and European projects and D&C activities. She led a project to initiate students into electromicrobiology, granted first prize for scientific dissemination. Since 2013, coordinator of the ISMET newsletter. Secretary of the BD of Association of Biotechnology Communicators-AcB
Juan Manuel Ortiz
In 2015, he joined the IMDEA Water Institute, focusing his research on the development of microbial electrochemical processes for the treatment of urban and industrial wastewater, and sustainable desalination systems. He has participated in 11 national and 4 European projects, including BacWire (FP7) and MIDES (Horizon 2020).
Antonio Berná Galiana
The study of bacteria/electrode interaction triggered his interest in electromicrobiology to develop biosensors. He has taken part in more than 20 national and European projects. He joined IMDEA Water in 2015. He has authored 5 patents and is cofounder of Nanoelectra, a technological based company.
María Isabel López
PhD in Analytical Chemistry in 2013 with a thesis focused on metal speciation in biological samples and nanoparticles studies using chromatographic techniques coupled to inductively plasma mass spectrometry (LC-ICP-MS) and nanoparticles characterization (AF4-ICP-MS). Postdoctoral researcher at Department of Material in Imperial College University in London (2013-2014). She joined IMDEA Water as laboratory staff in 2014.
Daniela Torruella Salas
Since 2019 she has been working at the Bioe group, where she has specialized in microbial electrochemical technologies. Her scientific career is summarized with the study of conductive bed bioreactors, microbial electrochemical sensors for the quality of wastewater and groundwater, and 3D-printing of anaerobic bacteria in hydrogels.
