my name is Gabriela Avila and I'm a biotechnologist engineer from Costa Rica. Right now I'm doing my master in Biochemistry, Molecular biology and Biomedicine in the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB) .
For my master thesis i'll be working at the ICMAB, with the Nanomol group in developing Dynamic supramolecular hydrogels for cancer immunotherapies.
I am really excited to start working with them and I hope to have the chance to learn a lot during these nine months I'm staying here.
When I'm not in the lab I love doing outdoor activities, traveling, reading, hanging out with my friends, dancing and playing football.
Hello! My name is Zsolt Kelemen. I did my PhD in Hungary and have joined at the Laboratory of Inorganic Materials as a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow under supervision of Prof. Clara Viñas. My research interests include chemistry of low-valent compounds, ferrocene-containing systems and ionic liquids. My current project is to tune both the photoluminescence and conductive properties of new COP materials.
I hope I can learn a lot from you. See you around :)

My name is Sara Battista and I'm a PhD student at University of L'Aquila. I did my bachelor's degree in chemistry at University of Rome "La Sapienza" and my master's degree in Chemical Science (organic chemistry) at University of L'Aquila. I'm working on liposomes used to develop a sensor for dosing biomarker enzymes and to vehiculate natural substances with farmacological activity. Now I'm doing a period of three months at ICMAB with the Nanomol group to investigate our formulations using a different methodology to increase stability and selectivity of systems.
In my freetime I like to ski, sing and walk with my dog.
My name is Xiaodong Zhang and I come from Northeastern University in China. I had a background of Metallurgical engineering and did something about inorganic materials. Now I’m in the group of Crystallography of Magnetic and Electronic Oxide and Surfaces(CMEOS) under the guidance of Prof. José Luis García-Muñoz to extend my education career as a Ph.D. student. I’ll work on preparing different multiferroic oxides and analyzing their related properties. Hoping that I can do some novel and constructive work afterwards. In my spare time I like to play badminton, swimming, reading and travelling. I’d like to enjoy this new experience and spending good time with all of you!
See you around!
