Dr Natalie Flores Diaz
Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions Individual Fellow
Natalie Flores Diaz obtained her M.Sc. Degree in Chemistry at University of Costa Rica (UCR) in 2016, under the supervision of Prof. Leslie W. Pineda. During her master’s program, she studied the synthesis of new organic redox pairs for Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSCs) at the Electrochemistry and Chemical Energy Research Center (CELEQ, UCR). In 2017, she joined the doctoral program of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (EDCH) at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland, at the Laboratory of Photomolecular Sciences (LSPM) under the supervision of Prof. Anders Hagfeldt. She was awarded a full scholarship from the UCR to conduct her studies at the EDCH doctoral program. She has been developing cobalt-based tandem and quasi-solid electrolytes DSSCs and obtained her Ph.D. degree in 2021. She was recently awarded a Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions Individual Fellowship to join Dr. Freitag’s group and conduct research on the development of sustainable hybrid technologies employing DSSCs.
