Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry, Universidad Complutense de Madrid (2014)

PhD Student in the Ceramics and Glass Institute (ICV-CSIC) of Madrid. PhD programme: “Química Aplicada” of the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (UAM).

Thesis: Propiedades de luminiscencia persistente en vitrocerámicos del sistema MgO-SrO/BaO-SiO2

Date of reading: approx. 2021.

Supervisor: Dr. María Jesús Pascual

In 2014, I got the Chemistry Science degree by Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM), where I completed my final project in “Certification of reference materials: Determination of nickel in a rice paste using atomic absorption spectrophotometry with a graphite chamber” (2014). In the same university I have done the master´s degree in chemistry of materials where I did the final project of the master in “Obtaining coatings of metal oxides by sol-gel processes” (2016).

I worked in the company Labaqua as a sample management technician for 5 months (2016).

I did a research stay in the CENIM-CSIC TecnoEco research group for 5 months (2017).

In February 2017, I joined the Glass Department of Ceramic and Glass Institute – CSIC for started a PhD on materials with persistent luminescence, under the direction of Dr. María Jesús Pascual. I am expanding my scientific training thanks to courses and congresses that I have been able to attend. I have carried out two stays in the summer school of Montellier of the ICG. I have made a stay at the ESRF in Grenoble for the measurement of X-ray diffraction and I have attended the V Spanish-Portuguese Congress of Ceramics and Glass with an oral presentation.
