Rebeca Marcilla is senior researcher of the Unit of Electrochemical Processes of IMDEA Energy.

She obtained her PhD in Chemistry from the University of the Basque Country (2006). After international research and post-doctoral stays at Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands) and University College London (U.K.), she joined the technological Centre for Electrochemical Technologies (CIDETEC). In 2010, she moved to IMDEA Energy to work as Senior Researcher in the Electrochemical Processes Unit. She received awards, e.g., “Ramón y Cajal” fellowship (2011) and an ERC Consolidator Grant (2017) to develop an innovative concept of Membrane-Free Redox Flow Battery (MFreeB project, No. 726217).

Her main research interest is the development of electrochemical energy storage devices by using new IL-based electrolytes, redox flow batteries and polymer batteries.

Rebeca Marcilla has supervised 10 PhD students (including 1 Marie Curie ITN fellow), 10 postdocs (including 2 Marie-Curie COFUND fellows), and several master’s theses and undergraduate students. She is co-author of more than 90 scientific papers in international journals (H-index 34 SCOPUS 06/2020) and hold 5 patents.
