My research expertise ranges across the cost-effective synthesis of oxides and their chemical and structural characterization to develop functional materials with tailored properties focusing on electronic and energy harvesting applications.

Currently, my research interests are on the rational design of chemical procedures to prepare thin films and nanocomposites combining solution processing and atomic layer deposition. We are also interested in exploring single crystalline freestanding oxide membranes to unlock novel and enhanced properties arising from extreme flexural deformation and artificial stacking. We aim to understand the synthesis-property relationship of all these systems with special emphasis on multifunctional complex oxides including multiferroics which are attractive candidates for applications in information storage, spintronics, sensors, actuators and optoelectronics. 

I graduated in Chemistry from Universitat de Barcelona and hold a PhD in Materials Science from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.  I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Maryland and NIST (USA) for 3 years and since 2018 I am a tenured scientist at ICMAB-CSIC. I was awarded with “L’Oreal Women in Science 2017” and “Beca Leonardo FBBVA 2020”. I have given more than 30 invited talks and co-organized 6 international conferences, symposiums and schools in the field of oxides and materials for energy and electronics. I am active in the supervision of PhD students and mentoring postdocs.
