Dr Ana Maria Cortes

Business Research Associate - Energy Systems

I am a Business Research Associate within the European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University. I have a MSc (Hons) in Advanced Materials and Processes and completed my PhD in thermal processing of agricultural residues for energy recovery. 

I am involved in developing techno-economic studies for SMEs and partnerships in the West Midlands to become actively involved in the production of energy and materials from residues and solid waste. I am also interested in developing new business partnerships to transfer innovative research towards commercial application.
