Chemical and Environmental Engineering Group

Alicia García studied Chemical Engineering in Complutense University of Madrid (1993-1998) and received his Ph. D in 2005 (Rey Juan Carlos University) working on liquid phase rearrangement of long-straight chain epoxides over heterogeneous catalysts. She has occupied several teaching positions in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Technologies, starting in 1999 as teaching assistant, becoming assistant professor in 2001 and associate professor since 2008. She has been visiting researcher at Politecnico di Torino in Italy in 2002 under the supervision of Prof. Edoardo Garrone and in the Clean Tecnology Center in the University of York (England) in 2005 under the supervision of Prof. James Clark. Her main research lines are focused on developing new heterogeneous catalytic systems for green and fine chemistry, feedstock recycling of plastic wastes and more recently biodiesel and hydrogen production.
