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 Marta.This year I will finish up my 4th and last year of Physics degree at UAB. From September to December I will be in LASER Processing group doing the degree internship under the supervision of Angel Pérez.
I hope I can learn a lot from you. See you around :)
Hello! I'm Daniel from Bacelona. I'm at ICMAB to learn how to make efficient solar cells as a part of a scientific program called Youth and Science. During this month I will be using materials such as oxide perovskites, which have interesting properties.
Hello I am Saúl from Cantabria and I will be working on my PhD at ICMAB for the next years.
My name is Laura and I am from Galicia. I have studied Chemistry at the University of Santiago de Compostela and a Master of Analytical Chemistry at the University of Barcelona. I am at the ICMAB to do my PhD under the supervision of Dr. Núria Aliaga and Dr. Concepción Domingo.
I really enjoy reading, going to the movies and doing crafts.
See you at ICMAB!!!!
My name is Bernat and I'm from Terrassa, near Barcelona. I'm on my last year of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology, in the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB).
I'm currently working in a project involving lithium-oxygen batteries with carbon electrodes based on natural materials, under the supervision of Dr. Dino Tonti here at ICMAB; a very valuable experience which will form part of the final project for my degree.
My hobbies include mountaineering, reading, playing the guitar, and playing sports in general. I look forward to working with you!
My name is Eulàlia and I'm from Rubí (Barcelona). I got my BSc in Chemistry and my MSc in Industrial Chemistry and Chemical Research at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. I'm going to stay at ICMAB as a PhD student during the following 3 years, in the Solid State Chemistry group under the supervision of Prof. Nieves Casañ-Pastor and Dr. Dino Tonti working in the "electrochemistry, electroactive materials - synthesis, doping, energy storage and bio" research line.
In my spare time I love travelling abroad, listening to music and playing it (I play the piano and the flute since I was a child) and I also love resolving puzzles and enigmas (I'm an "escape room" addict!!! You can ask me for more information about this kind of games :P).
I'm really looking forward to meet you all and share good moments and experiences!!! I'll see you soon in ICMAB :)
Hi all! I'm Xavier from Molins de Rei (Barelona). After finishing with my bachelor in nanoscience at UAB, I decided to start a master in biomedicine at UB. This latter brought me to this great research center called ICMAB in order to realize my master thesis on carboranes under the supervision of Rosario Nuñez. In my spare time I enjoy reading, having a good conversation with a beer in hand and travelling.
I'm looking forward to meet you all and share good experiences together!
Hi! My name is Xavi and I'm currently studying the double degree in Physics and Chemistry at UAB. Here at ICMAB I'm with professor Jordi Faraudo doing my final project about the theoretical study of solid lipid nanoparticles using coarse-grain approximations. In my free time I like travelling, reading russian literature and meeting friends. I hope to see you around!
Hi everyone! My name is Eduardo Pérez. I'm from Palencia (Spain). I have studied Chemical Engineering and a Master in Biomedical Research in the University of Valladolid, and I came to the ICMAB to do my PhD about Dynamic Hydrogels for their applications in Immunotherapy for Cancer under de supervision of Imma Ratera and Judith Guash. I would like to enjoy with you this new experience, working togheter and spending good times with you.
My name is Gemma and I am from Barcelona. I have a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and Management from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
I am the administrative accountant at spin-off OXOLUTIA and I will work with Albert Calleja on financial and organizational matters.
I'm joining ICMAB (as a RyC scientist) to work within the multifunctional oxides group. My work experience and interests are magnetism and spintronics in mesoscopic systems. Currently, I seek new types of information processing inspired on how the brain works; I consider that exploiting complexity of magnetic and electric signals at the nanoscale is an alternative approach to device miniaturization. I believe there is life outside the lab and we, scientists, must connect our work with society. By the way, my name is Ferran Macià and I look forward to meeting and collaborating with you.
My name is Jose Muñoz. Recently, I have finished my PhD in the Sensors and Biosensors group at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB). I am glad to come back to ICMAB five years later, this time as a post-doctoral researcher in the NANOMOL group under the supervision of Dr. Marta Mas and Dr. Núria Crivillers. My research is focused on the tunability of different platforms with nanostructured carbon materials for the development of multi-analyte electrochemical pollutant sensors.
Hi! My name is Núria Portolés. I got my degree in Chemistry at UAB and a master's degree in Green Chemistry at UJI (Castelló) in collaboration with IUCT. I’ll stay at ICMAB as a PhD student in the supercritical fluids and functional materials group under the supervision of Prof Concha Domingo and Dr. Ana López-Periago.
I am Rosa and I am from Madrid.
I am lucky because I am a PhD student of X-Ray Cryogenic detectors and their Physics based in superconductors in ICMAB, before I worked as a technician for almost 4 years in several Research Institutes in Madrid.
I love travelling, knowing new places and learning new things everyday.
I will be between Barcelona and Zaragoza because I will do some tasks in Zaragoza (double lucky I am). This is my first time in Barcelona but very happy to be here, in a city with so many good references.
Hi everyone! My name is Anna, and I hold a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Technology from the Universitat de Barcelona. My thesis focused on silica mesoporous materials and nanoparticles. I have entered the ICMAB to perform a postdoc at the Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites group, with Dr. Anna Roig. The idea is to work with bacterial cellulose and nanoparticles, to optimize the synthesis and nanostructure of novel composite materials, and to study some specific applications, such as photocatalysis or batteries. I'm really looking forward to it, and to share my next few years with the people at the ICMAB. Apart from science, I love to dance the lindy hop and travel around the globe!
My name is Ana Begoña Buades Martín, I from Mallorca. I got my degree in Chemistry from Universitat de les Illes Balears, my master in pharmacy from Universidad de Granada and now I am starting my PhD in the ICMAB. I am working in Inorganic Materials and Catalysis research group with Professor Francesc Teixidor.
Hi everyone! My name is Albert Martínez and I am a fourth year Biotechnology student from Girona. I have joined NANOMOL in order to get experience and work on my final project. My hobbies include live music, cinema, sports and traveling.
Hi, My name is Agustín Mihi, I just joined ICMAB to investigate photonic architectures in emerging optoelectronic devices (solar cells, sensors, etc.) in collaboration with the group of Nanopto. Since I read my thesis in 2008 at the University of Sevilla, I have been to the University of Illinois, ICFO, the URV and finally here! I enjoy travelling, going to the movies, reading,...
My name is Carlos Pintado, I'm a Spanish student and I've just finished my A level studies. This year I'm going to start the Biology degree at UAB.
During my last course I did a research project for high school at analitical chemistry department (UAB) and I won an award: spend one or two weeks in a research group. That's the reason I'm in NANOMOL group during this summer under supervising of their members. I'm learing and watching their current job with nanomaterials and I found it fascinating!
I hope see you around!
Good Morning everyone!
My name is Carles Llavina and I've joined Nanomol group for a few months. I'll be working in different kinds of projects related to particulated materials.
