Marya Baloch is currently a post-doc researcher (Personal Investigator) in BioRP group in the Dept. of Chemical and Environmental Engineering at UPV/EHU.
She obtained an international Ph.D. degree in inorganic chemistry entitled “Strategies towards performance enhancement in Lithium-Sulphur Batteries” in 2016 from CIC-Energigune (UPV/EHU). The doctoral thesis research was focused on exploring possible solutions to the prime problems of lithium-sulphur battery system, mainly reduction of polysulphides resulting decaying of specific capacity and cycling life.
Prior to her Ph.D., she obtained a scholarship for an international Master in Chemistry, Molecules and Green Chemistry (2009-2011) from Université de Rennes 1, France, with the research work of 2 years in organic and organometallic chemistry on “Synthesis and characterization of organometallic chromophores applied to two photon absorption”. Continuing with a research internship in Catalysis group of UMR 6226 on catalysed arylation by palladium complexes.
Nowadays, her research interest is focused on the novel electroactive materials derived from renewable resources such as biomass.
