Personal profile

Academic background

Dr. Mar Pérez-Fortes is an assistant professor at the Technology, Policy and Management Faculty of the Delft University of Technology. She received her Master of Science in Industrial Engineering (Spain) in 2005 and her Master in International Business Administration (Spain) in 2010. She finished her PhD in Chemical Engineering in 2011 (Spain - UPC-BarcelonaTech). After a postdoctoral position in USA (at UC Irvine and UConn), she joined the Joint Research Centre (the Netherlands) in 2013, up to 2016. In 2017-2020, she was a scientist in Switzerland (EPFL). Her research has focused and focuses on the techno-economic assessment of emerging technologies (mainly bioenergy, CO2 capture and use, and electrochemical devices).

Research profile

Dr. Mar Pérez-Fortes's research is dedicated to clarifying the pathways for implementing alternative technologies aimed at reducing fossil fuel dependency in the industrial sector, taking a systemic perspective. She focuses on assessing the techno-economic, environmental, and social aspects of emerging technologies such as CO2 capture and utilization, bio-based processes, electrolysers and fuels cells. She primarily utilises methodologies in process systems engineering, operations research, and humanities and social science.
