Doctor Daniel Riba from the Functional Nanomaterials & Surfaces (FunNanoSurf) group at ICMAB-CSIC, defended his PhD thesis "Synthesis of T-shaped molecules for their deposition over three-terminal devices" on Wednesday, 1 March 2023 at ICMAB.
The PhD thesis was supervised by Núria Aliaga and Arántzazu González from the Functional Nanomaterials & Surfaces (FunNanoSurf) group at ICMAB-CSIC.
The PhD Committee that evaluated the Thesis was formed by María Concepción Domingo Pascual, ICMAB-CSIC (President), Maria Isabel Romero Garcia, Universitat de Girona (UdG) (Secretary) and Alessandro Sorrenti, Universitat de Barcelona (UB) (Vocal).
Doctor Daniel Riba's PhD thesis was part of the PhD Programme in Chemistry from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB).

I wanted to change the environment from the University of Barcelona and I thought it would be a challenge to do the PhD in a materials institute
My research consists in creating some molecules to put them over certain surfaces to see if they can conduct the electricity.
My research could be interesting for the creation of a small device used as a field-effect transistor that can be placed in a chip to substitute the already known silicon-based chips. Due to the high demanding increment of chips that have to be every time smaller in size, faster and cheap, our project could possibly promote this three demanding factors.

Patience, eventhough sometimes it is difficult you have to persevere in your goals.
The friends that I have done over these years.
I have a better understanding of the work in the laboratory.
Looking for a job in a company.
There are some things that sometimes are not working, don't worry about those things and think more possibilities to overcome the issues that you can encounter.
My parents are both scientists, so I think I have been influenced by them.
Stephen Hawking, eventhough he suffered a lot in life he was able to become one of the most important scientists in history.
