Title: Manipulation of hydrogen distribution in Pd by injection of ballistic electrons
Maria Blanco-Rey carried out her PhD in the Materials Science Institute of Madrid (belonging to CSIC) on the topic of theory of Low-Energy Electron Diffraction, and got her doctorate degree from the Autonomous University of Madrid in 2006. From 2007 to 2010, she joined the Surface Science Group of the Department of Chemistry in the University of Cambridge (UK) as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Her research subjects during that period were catalysis on palladium oxide surfaces an surface chirality using ab-initio methods. Since December 2010, she works as a Research Fellow at the Donostia International Physics Center in San Sebastian (Spain), where she investigates dynamical processes on surfaces.
