Núria Crivillers studied Chemistry at the Autonomus University of Barcelona and she did her PhD at the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC). She moved to Strasbourg (France) to work as postdoctoral fellow with a IEF Marie Curie Fellowship in the Nanochemistry group at Institut de Science et d'Ingénierie Supramoléculaires. In 2011 she move back to Barcelona with a Juan de la Cierva contract and later as Ramón y Cajal. Since March 2017 she has a tenured track research position at ICMAB-CSIC.
