Technology Director of Atlantic Copper Co. (Huelva)
Guillermo Ríos received his BS, MS and PhD with honours in Chemical Engineering in 1993, 1995 and 1998 respectively from the University of Oviedo (Spain). He has experience in university teaching due to his position as Assistant Professor in different universities (University of Burgos, 1998-1999; University of Oviedo, 1999-2000; University of Huelva, 2002). Also, he has worked as Process Development Engineer in SADIM (1998-2002) and as Senior Metallurgist, Copper Refinery, in Atlantic Copper SA (2002-2010). Since 2010 he works as Technology Director in Atlantic Copper SLU. His expertise is in copper electrorefining; copper pyrometallurgy, metallurgical wastes treatment and recycling; solids handling; tribology testing; cutting oils and stability of oil in water emulsions.
Professor from Universidade de Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro (Portugal).
Cristina Oliveira received her Ph. D. degree in Physical Chemistry (Electrochemistry) in 1996 from the University of Lisbon (FCUL). Afterwards, she moved to the University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro where she holds a permanent position. Her research work has been framed within the area of electrocatalysis, with special emphasis in the design of alloy catalysts and gas diffusion electrodes for application in energy conversion devices. In the last five years she has been engaged in understanding the mechanism of carbon nanomaterials formation upon the electro-exfoliation of graphite, ending up on creating a new strategy for the electrochemical synthesis of hydrophilic carbon nanomaterials. Her research experience has contributed to the preparation of carbon nanomaterials with tuned electrochemical properties and exploitation of their multifunctional properties.
Full Professor at the Sciences Faculty, Universidad de Córdoba (SPAIN)
Teresa Pineda received its PhD degree in 1991 in Physical Chemistry from the University of Cordoba (Spain). She made postdoctoral stage at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville (USA) from 1991 to 1993. In 1994 she returns to the University of Cordoba where she became full professor in 2010. Her research interest has been focused on different aspects of the Physical Chemistry of Biological Systems: protein structure and interactions with metallic surfaces; electrochemistry of surfaces and interfaces; self-assembled monolayer on gold substrates; gold nanoparticles of different shapes and its surface modifications and interactions. This research has been found by projects of the Ministry of Science (Spain).

GE - Young Researcher Award
Daniel Martín-Yerga is a Postdoctoral Researcher at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden. He has published more than 38 papers in international journals, 1 book chapter and 1 patent. His PhD in electroanalytical chemistry focused on the development of disposable electrochemical sensors, and was awarded the Extraordinary Award for the best PhD thesis in Science from the University of Oviedo and the San Alberto Magno Award from the Colegio de Químicos de Asturias. After his PhD, Dr. Martín-Yerga worked as Application Specialist for Dropsens, which further diversified his knowledge particularly in spectroelectrochemistry, before moving as a postdoc to study electrocatalysis for valorization of biomass at KTH.
