Bio

I graduated in Physics and received a PhD in Materials Science at the UAB. I completed my education at the KTH in Stockholm and at Northeastern University in Boston. More recently I spent over two years as a Seconded National Expert in Brussels at the Research Directorate. At present, I am a Senior Researcher at the ICMAB where I lead  the Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites Group. 

I am interested in issues related to women in science and education of science at all levels. Other interests are geo-politics, literature, travelling and argentinean tango. I have lived and worked for extended periods of time in Sweden, USA, UK, Poland and Belgium

 

 

 

Research interest

I am a materials scientist working in the preparation, characterization and new uses of functional nanomaterials. My scientific activities revolve around the rational desing and synthesis of inorganic and hybrid nanoparticles and nanocomposites and the study of their structural-functional properties including the better understanding of nano/bio/interactions. My driving force is to prove the validation of nanomaterials in applications related to Nanomedicine (contrast agents for MRI, drug delivery vehicles, cell therapy) and Environmental Monitoring (heavy metals sensors).
