Student profiles

A few of ISE's students answer some questions about their study experience and living in Iceland.

  • Ximena


Ximena Muguruza, Peru

Working at an environmental consultancy firm in Lima, Peru after finishing her undergraduate studies in environmental engineering, Ximena decided to further her knowledge in geothermal energy and joined ISE in 2014. 

Throughout her studies, Ximena focused on geothermal and reservoir engineering, which ultimately lead to her thesis, modelling the Hágöngur Geothermal Reservoir. After graduating ISE in 2016, Ximena returned to Peru. She rejoined the environmental consultancy and is actively involved in restructuring procedures surrounding environmental impact assessments of renewable energy projects, where her knowledge of geothermal and renewable energies are critical to her work.
