Paula Perez-Lopez



Paula Pérez-López is an Associate Research Scientist at the Centre O.I.E. (Observation, Impacts, Energie) of MINES ParisTech, in Sophia Antipolis (France). She holds a PhD in Chemical and Environmental Engineering from the University of Santiago de Compostela, in Spain (2015). Her research areas include the development and application of Life Cycle Assessment methodology for the evaluation of renewable energy technologies (photovoltaics, wind power, biomass, geothermal energy…), as well as the production of biologically active molecules and biofuels by marine organisms, and the transport sector. She has collaborated as a visiting researcher at several international universities and research centers including the Algae Production And Research Center – AlgaePARC – at Wageningen University (The Netherlands), Northeastern University in Boston (MA, United States) and the Limerick Institute of Technology (Ireland).
