Laboratory Doctor Technician (PhD in Analytical Chemistry)
IMDEA Water. Avenida Punto Com, 2. Parque Científico Tecnológico de la Universidad de Alcalá. Alcalá de Henares. 28805 MADRID
She holds a Degree in Chemistry from Complutense University of Madrid (2007). She received her PhD in Analytical Chemistry in 2013 (UCM). Her Thesis is focused on metal speciation in biological samples and inorganic nanoparticles studies (characterization, quantification and cytotoxic effects). During her PhD studies, she achieved experience in chromatographic separation techniques coupled to inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LC-ICP-MS), as well as in nanoparticles characterization methodologies, such as asymmetrical field- field-flow fractionation (AF4) coupled to ICP-MS. She worked as postdoctoral research at Department of Material in Imperial College University in London (2013-2014) where she was involved in the functionalization of nanoparticles and in the evaluation of their antibacterial mechanisms.
She has presented her research work in numerous national and international meetings, and she has a large number of studies published in scientific journals. In addition, she has collaborated in competitive funded research projects.
She joined IMDEA Water as laboratory stuff in 2014 to work in the development on analytical methodologies based on mass spectrometry techniques (ICP-MS, LC-MS/MS and LC-QTOF). She has broad experience in the identification and quantification of microcontaminants in environmental samples.
