María José Piernas Muñoz received her D. Phil. degree in Materials Science and Technology from the Basque Country University and the research centre CIC EnergigGUNE in December 2016 (Spain). During these years she focused her efforts on the development of Prussian blue type materials both for Li-ion and Na-ion batteries. Currently, she is a post-doctoral researcher at Argonne National Laboratory and her research is focused on the investigating new materials for energy storage both for lithium ion batteries for electrical vehicle applications.
Elizabeth Castillo Martinez received her D. Phil. degree in Chemistry from the University Complutense of Madrid in 2008. She is an Associate Researcher at CIC-Energigune investigating materials for Lithium ion batteries, including intercalation and conversion materials, redox flow batteries as well as Na-ion batteries with special interest on -N=C- related materials (Prussian Blue, Schiff bases and Carbodiimides).
