Keynote Abstract

Dr. Iliana Medina-Ramírez

Universidad Autonoma de Aguascalientes, Mexico

Iliana E. Medina-Ramírez got her Ph.D. in chemistry (organometallic and materials chemistry) from Tulane University in 2005. She has more than 15 years of research experience in the field of nanostructured materials (metallic, metal oxides, and metal-chalcogenides), with a particular interest in metal or metal oxide materials for environmental remediation and biomedical applications. She has published 80 papers in international peer-review journals, 4 book chapters, and is the co-editor of the book “Photocatalytic Semiconductors. Synthesis, characterization, and environmental applications” Springer (Ed), She has participated in more than 50 international conferences. She has supervised 120 BSc students, 10 MSc students, and 6 doctorate students. She was awarded the best junior researcher prize (2007), advanced researcher award (2nd place, 2011) and consolidated researcher award (2019) at her current academic institution. She is a member of the System of National Researchers (Mexico) and co-organizer of the Mexico-China Workshop on Renewable Energy and Environment Remediation. She participates actively in the Peer Review process for several journals (more than 250 Peer Review activities).Her current interests are the development of large scale photocatalytic technologies for air purification. She is also interested in the search or composite materials with optimal properties for biomedical applications (chronic and infectious diseases).

Abstract Title: Photocatalysis A Sustainable and Versatile Technique for Indoor Air Purification
