Early Careers

    Introducing SCI Ambassador, Luis Fernando Arenas Martinez

    Luis Fernando Arenas Martinez

    "Contacts made in SCI can be very useful when looking for a job, or when writing up proposals with industrial partners and sponsors."

    What are your research interests? 
    Flow batteries, electrochemical reactors, electroless deposition, porous electrodes, fuel cells, electrochemical hydrogen compression, computed tomography, corrosion, recuperation of strategic elements.

    How did you first get involved with SCI?
    I won the ‘best poster prize’ in a SCI conference in 2016 and I was thus invited to organise the 2017 Electrochemistry Postgraduate Conference at my university. I gladly accepted and became an early-career representative of SCI’s Electrochemical Technology Group.

    What do you hope to gain from your involvement with SCI?
    I hope to encourage other scientists to consider the problems and opportunities found in industrial electrochemistry, including energy storage, processing, manufacturing and coatings. Fundamental electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering are complimentary and play important roles in the development of more efficient and sustainable technologies.

    Why would you encourage your peers to join SCI?
    SCI organises events aimed to promote the application of chemical sciences in productive settings. This means that members can share expertise originated directly from industry.
