Biography

Dr Ewa Marek holds a lecturer position at the Chemical Engineering Department since 2019, after five years spent as a post-doctoral associate at the Engineering Department. Before arriving at Cambridge, Ewa worked for six years on industrial R&D and advanced measurement methods in Nottingham (UK), Petten (Netherlands) and Warsaw (Poland). She studied energy and chemical processing (BEng, MSc) in Cracow and carbon capture processes (Ph.D.) in Katowice (both in Poland). At the University of Cambridge, Ewa actively participates in multiple projects on the sustainable production of power and chemicals, collaborating across departments and Interdisciplinary Research Centres, such as Energy@ Cambridge, Cambridge Zero, Centre for Climate Repair. She also leads the Departmental Green Impact Team.

Research Interests

Dr Ewa Marek leads the Energy Carriers and Reactions (ERC) group at the Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology Department. Together with the group, Ewa works on sustainable and renewable ways to generate heat, power, and chemicals. She uses her expertise in power and chemical sectors to forge the pathways towards the 2050 net-zero future, occasionally branching into developing new medical technologies (distributed disinfectants for high-quality sterilisation, and oxygen generation). In her work, Ewa combines experimental and modelling research, using methodologies and insights from material sciences, chemistry, fluid mechanics, catalysis, thermodynamics, and probably a few more.
