Luiz Pinto


My name is Luiz Pinto, I'm from Portugal. I have recently completed my PhD in Science and Chemical Technology at the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain) in the Center for Research in Biological Chemistry and Molecular Materials (CiQUS). I'll stay at ICMAB as post-doctoral researcher in the NANOMOL group under the supervision of Dr. José Vidal Gancedo. My work deals with the synthesis and study of organic radicals for high sensitivity NMR experiments (DNP-NMR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

See you around!

Lyu Jike

Hello, everyone! My name is Jike Lyu,I got my master degree from Northeastern University in China. I have the honour to join the " Magnetic Materials and Functional Oxides" group of ICMAB under the supervision of Florencio Sanchez for P.hD degree. I like travelling and singing. Looking forward a great life during the following years in Barcelona!

Rosa María Jáudenes

I am Rosa and I am from Madrid.

I am lucky because I am a PhD student of X-Ray Cryogenic detectors and their Physics based in superconductors  in ICMAB, before I worked as a technician for almost 4 years in several Research Institutes in Madrid.
I love travelling, knowing new places and learning new things everyday. 
I will be between Barcelona and Zaragoza because I will do some tasks in Zaragoza (double lucky I am). This is my first time in Barcelona but very happy to be here, in a city with so many good references. 

See you!!!

Anna May Masnou

Hi everyone! My name is Anna, and I hold a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Technology from the Universitat de Barcelona. My thesis focused on silica mesoporous materials and nanoparticles. I have entered the ICMAB to perform a postdoc at the Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites group, with Dr. Anna Roig. The idea is to work with bacterial cellulose and nanoparticles, to optimize the synthesis and nanostructure of novel composite materials, and to study some specific applications, such as photocatalysis or batteries. I'm really looking forward to it, and to share my next few years with the people at the ICMAB. Apart from science, I love to dance the lindy hop and travel around the globe!
