We are very happy to announce that Mariona Coll, ICMAB researcher at the Superconducting Materials and Large Scale Nanostructures group (SUMAN), has been awarded with one of the Research Awards L'Oréal-Unesco "For Women in Science" in the 2017 Call for her project "Nanochemistry: New materials for the efficient conversion of solar energy".
After obtaining her PhD at ICMAB on 2007, Mariona did her postdoctoral research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and at University of Maryland (USA). She came back at ICMAB in 2010, and obtained the Ramon y Cajal Researcher position in 2014. Her research interests are focused on novel materials for energy applications, such as superconducting materials or materials for photovoltaics.
The Research Award "For Women in Science", of 15,000 €, will be devoted to support and promote the project developed at ICMAB by Mariona Coll during the following year. The awards ceremony will take place in Madrid on November 22, 2017.
The Jury of this XII Edition was composed by the following scientists:
