Dr. Maria Escudero Escribano, University of Copenhagen, Denmark, has been awarded the Clara Immerwahr Award 2019 for her contributions to the fields of electrocatalysis and electrochemical surface science. The award was presented at a public ceremony at the Technical University of Berlin (TU Berlin), Germany, on May 3, 2019.

The annual Clara Immerwahr Award honors a young female scientist at an early stage of their career for outstanding achievements in catalysis research. The award is presented by UniSysCat (Unifying Systems in Catalysis), Berlin, Germany.

Dr. Escudero Escribano’s research interests include structures of the electrochemical interface and the catalytically active sites in electrocatalysis and structure-activity-selectivity relations for electrochemical energy conversion and the electrosynthesis of renewable fuels and chemicals.

Maria Escudero Escribano studied chemical engineering at University of Extremadura, Spain, and received her Ph.D. in chemistry from the Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain, in 2011. She then performed postdoctoral research with Ib Chorkendorff and Ifan Stephens at the Technical University of Denmark, Kongens Lyngby, and worked as a visiting scholar with Thomas Jaramillo, Stanford University, CA, USA. Since 2017, she is Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemistry and the Nano-Science Center at the University of Copenhagen. Among other honors, Escudero-Escribano has received the European Young Chemist Award 2016 from EuChemS, the Princess of Girona Scientific Research Award 2018, and the Electrochemical Society Energy Technology Division Young Investigator Award 2018.
