Dr. Nerea Casado earned her B.Sc. in Chemistry (2012) and M.Sc. in Applied Chemistry and Polymeric Materials (2013) from the University of the Basque Country, Spain. She was awarded with the Best Academic Record Award 2012 in Chemistry. In April 2017 she defended her PhD Thesis at POLYMAT Institute under the supervision of Prof. David Mecerreyes on Innovative Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) materials for energy storage. During her thesis she worked in close collaboration with CIC energiGUNE (Spain) under the supervision of Prof. Michel Armand. She was visiting researcher in the group of Maria Forsyth at Deakin University (2016, Australia) where she investigated the electroactivity of conducting polymers in ionic liquids for sodium batteries. At present, she is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of the Basque Country working in close collaboration with Deakin University. Her research interests include redox polymers, conducting polymers, organic ionic plastic crystals and functional composite materials for energy storage and bioelectronic applications.
