Núria López, Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia, Spain

Núria López

Núria López graduated in Chemistry (1999) and got her Ph.D. degree in Theoretical Chemistry at the University of Barcelona, Spain (1995). As a postdoctoral researcher, she joined the Center for Atomic-scale Materials Physics led by Prof. Jens K. Nørskov (Denmark). In 2005 she started her independent career at ICIQ. Her research group focuses on the theoretical research in heterogeneous photo-electro-catalysis. Prof. López has co-authored over 200 scientific publications. In 2010 she was awarded an ERC Starting Grant (2010) and then a ERC Proof-of-concept (2015) by the European Research Council. She was awarded a “Prize for Excellence” by the Real Sociedad Española de Química in 2015. She has collaborated with several industries in Europe to leverage atomistic modelling, participated in 9 EU projects, and served in several committees in the European Union, including the most important supercomputing initiatives in Europe (she is currently Chair of PRACE‘s Steering Committee).

Prof. López has an h impact of 52, has published over 200 published articles (5 Nature Communications, 4 Nature Catalysis, 2 Nature Materials, 1 Nature Chemistry, 1 Nature Nanotechnology, 1 Nature Energy), one of them has more than 800 citations and 2 more than 500 (February 2020). She has also contributed to software development: Solvent contributions for VASP, Kinetic Monte-Carlo code, and the repository ioChem-BD, a computational catalysis database.
