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. Her Thesis is focused on metal speciation in biological samples and inorganic nanoparticles studies. 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 (AF4-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 joined IMDEA Water as laboratory stuff in 2014 to work in the development on analytical methodologies based on high resolution mass spectrometry techniques (LC-QTOF) and triple quadrupole (LC-ICP-MS and LC-MS/MS). She has broad experience in the identification and quantification of microcontaminants in environmental samples.
