Chemical and Environmental Engineering Group

Beatriz Paredes (05/16/1980) studied Chemical Engineering in Rey Juan Carlos University (2003, Hons.). She developed her Ph.D. in the Chemical and Environmental Engineering Group, Rey Juan Carlos University, granted by the Spanish Government (2004-2008). After that, she has been Postdoctoral Researcher and, since January 2009, Assistant Professor. She carried out a short stay during her Ph.D. (3 months) in the Institute for Polymer Research of the University of Waterloo (Ontario, Canada) under the supervision of Prof. Joao B.P. Soares; and a postdoctoral stay (6 months) in the “Laboratoire de Chimie et Procédés de Polymérisation, Centre Nationale de la Recherche Scientifique” (Lyon, France) under the supervision of Dr. Christophe Boisson and Dr. Franck D’Agosto. Her main research interests are focused on the synthesis and characterization of supports and supported polymerization catalysts, and its use in olefin polymerization in slurry processes, with a fundamental polyolefin characterization.
