Encarnación Ruiz Agudo obtained her PhD degree with the dissertation entitled “Prevention of salt damage to the built cultural heritage by the use of crystallization inhibitors” at the Department of Mineralogy and Petrology, University of Granada, Spain. She is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Mineralogy at the University of Münster, Germany.
Her main research interests are crystal growth and dissolution processes at the nanoscale, with special emphasis on the effects of additives and electrolytes. Her current research activities, within the EU Initial Training Network Delta-Min, focus on fluid induced mineral replacement reactions.
