Dr Nuria Tapia-Ruiz
Senior Lecturer in Energy Materials, Lancaster University

Nuria graduated in Chemistry from the University of Barcelona. After this, she pursued her PhD studies in hydrogen storage materials with Prof. Gregory at the University of Glasgow. She then moved to the University of St. Andrews to work as a Postdoctoral Fellow with Prof. Bruce in energy storage materials. In 2014, she moved with Prof. Bruce and his research group to Oxford (Materials Department, University of Oxford) to work as a Research Fellow where she took up the role of Team Leader of the Sodium-ion battery team. She started her independent career as a Lecturer in Chemistry at Lancaster University in 2017 and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2020. ​In November 2022 her research group and lab moved to the Chemistry Department at Imperial College London, where she is Senior Lecturer.

The Tapia-Ruiz lab [] consists of a multidisciplinary research group of students and postdocs with an interest in the Physics and Chemistry of Materials for Energy Storage, primarily in the area of electrochemical energy storage devices such as rechargeable batteries and supercapacitors.
