Gabriela Avila Morales

Hello,
my name is Gabriela Avila and I'm a biotechnologist engineer from Costa Rica. Right now I'm doing my master in Biochemistry, Molecular biology and Biomedicine in the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB) .
For my master thesis i'll be working at the ICMAB, with the Nanomol group in developing Dynamic supramolecular hydrogels for cancer immunotherapies.
I am really excited to start working with them and I hope to have the chance to learn a lot during these nine months I'm staying here.
When I'm not in the lab I love doing outdoor activities, traveling, reading, hanging out with my friends, dancing and playing football.

 

 

 

Xiaodong Zhang

Hello there!
My name is Xiaodong Zhang and I come from Northeastern University in China. I had a background of Metallurgical engineering and did something about inorganic materials. Now I’m in the group of Crystallography of Magnetic and Electronic Oxide and Surfaces(CMEOS) under the guidance of Prof. José Luis García-Muñoz to extend my education career as a Ph.D. student. I’ll work on preparing different multiferroic oxides and analyzing their related properties. Hoping that I can do some novel and constructive work afterwards. In my spare time I like to play badminton, swimming, reading and travelling. I’d like to enjoy this new experience and spending good time with all of you!
See you around!
