Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon in the Institute of Membrane Research

Predoctoral Researcher

Maria de los Angeles Ramirez Kantun obtained her B.Sc. in Industrial Chemical Engineering (2012) at the Universidad Autonoma de Yucatan (Mexico). After several years working as process engineer in the extraction and refining of vegetable oil, she pursued her master’s degree in Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering (2019) at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) with the specialization in general process engineering. During this time, she conducted her thesis at the Institute of Membrane Research at Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (Hereon since 2021), working on the development of polymeric thin-film composite membranes for high temperature applications, namely for the separation of H2 from CO2. In 2022, she returned to Hereon as a doctoral researcher within the BIOCOMEM project, where she is currently further developing flat-sheet membranes with the newly investigated bio-based block copolymers for their later application in CO2 separations.
