I'm delighted to be at ICMAB. My favourites hobbies are playing videogames and play soccer. My favourite team is Barcelona from Ecuador. (Yeah this team has the same name as Barça team, lol)!
I am Dídac, 22 years old and I am in the last course of the double degree in Physics & Chemistry offered by the UAB. I am joining the ICMAB in order to do my end-of-degree projects altogether with the theory and simulation of materials group under the supervision of Dr. Riccardo Rurali. I cannot wait to get hands on with real science!
Hello! My name is Joana Ribeiro and I am from Guimarães, a city in the North part of Portugal. I am an applied physicist and just started my PhD at the University of Minho. The goal of my work is to increase the thermoelectric properties of Transparent conductive oxide thin films. At ICMAB, I will be working together with the Nanopto group, measuring the thermal conductivity of doped ZnO and TiO2 thin films.
I practice japanese martial arts and enjoy travelling, photography and drawing.
Best Regards, Joana Ribeiro
Hi, I'm Genís Guillem from Sabadell. I am in the last course of de the degree in Physics and Chemistry of the UAB and I will be making my TFG in chemistry in the ICMAB.
The photography is taken near the Old Man of Storr on the isle of Skye in Scotland. It was a short and pleasant hike.
Hey, I'm Jewel and I am from India. I have joined as a PhD fellow in the Inorganic Materials and Catalysis Lab (LMI). I will be working with different nanoparticles and their characterization for various applications.
I enjoy reading, exploring places and trying new cuisines. I am a big movie fanatic and enjoy good company. Hope to meet everyone. Adieu!
Hi there! I am Ariana Roldán, a Chemical Engineer who is developing her Master’s thesis at ICMAB. I feel attracted to the world of engineering, more specifically, the one related to chemistry and biology. For this reason, I decided to broaden my knowledge by studying the master's degree in biological and environmental engineering. It brings together some of the fundamentals that I need to achieve my goal, which is being part of a scientific breakthrough. I am delighted to be able to contribute my experience in the field of drug nanoencapsulation being part of Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites group. I am looking forward to learn as much as possible from this opportunity.
Hi! My name is Nerea Murugarren and I am studying Biochemistry in the University Autonomous of Barcelona. I decided to do the practical work for my last degree year in the ICMAB as I found interesting the research field of the group "Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites".
I consider myself as a friendly person so I will be pleased to get to know people while I am there.
Finally, I attached a photo from my last holiday in Egypt. See you!
Hi, I'm Shima Fasahat from Iran and Isfahan city. I came to the ICMAB for a summer research internship in the field of nanocarbon supercapacitors. This was a great chance for me to learn many new things. Currently I am an undergraduate physics student at university of Isfahan, Isfahan, Iran. I am interested in learning new languages and at the moment I know English and French in addition to my mother tongue which is Persian. I'm going to learn Spanish for the third foreign language. I also do fitness as my sport time and hobby
Hi! I'm Giulia, a master student from the University of Rome Tor Vergata. I'm a Chemist and I have worked with DNA nanotechnologies during my bachelor thesis. I will spend 3 months in Nanomol group in the frame of NanoOligoMed project, to develop novel chemical sensors by combining the advantageous features of DNA nanotecnology with that of Nanomol tecnology.
I'm a french student doing a research internship here for my degree in an engineering school. I already came here two years ago for a licence degree. I really enjoy the institut.
Hello, my name is Francisco De Santiago, I'm a PhD student from Mexico City. I work in DFT calculations and now I'm going to work with Dr. Riccardo Rurali's group in ab initio calculations of thermal conductivity. I'm delighted to be at ICMAB.

Ciao people! My name is Emanuele and I've just joined the Theory and Simulation unit, working with Alberto Garcia. I'm originally from Italy, but I feel pretty European after living in 4 different countries in the past 5 years. I just finished my PhD program in Dublin and here I work as maintainer/developer of the software aiida-siesta. Aiida-siesta allows to run quantum-mechanical simulations on many systems in an automatic way. The idea is to unlock the power of modern supercomputer in order to create databases of calculated material properties that can then be explored in search for materials with ad-hoc characteristics.
I love sports, swimming and judo mostly. Moreover I like to travel and admire the beauty of the Creation (see picture for a reference!). I'm very exited for this new adventure in Barcelona, I look forward to explore new science and meet new people!
Hola! My name is Filipe Correia. I am a Metallurgist with a minor in physics from the very North of Portugal. As a PhD student at the University of Minho, my goal is to increase the thermoelectrics properties of some Transparent conductive oxides. At ICMAB, I will be working with the Nanopto group, measuring thermal conductivity of doped ZnO and TiO2 thin films. I enjoy hiking, swimming and of course playing football. I am very happy to be here, see you around!
Heyo! I'm Xavi from Barcelona. I'm a chemistry student who will be doing his TFG at ICMAB working with magnetic metamaterials. I consider myself a cheerful person and I love music and cheese above all. One of my dreams is to bring science to the people and make it interesting enough to make them learn and be entertained via Youtube videos or so. See you around!
