Valentin is a Master Student in Chemistry at the Chemistry Faculty of Belarusian State University (BSU). His Master thesis is devoted to the development of composite materials based on oxide ferrimagnetic nanoparticles and functionalized silicon dioxide for magnetic bioseparation.
Today during the Group Meeting we welcomed the 5 new Ph.D. students that will start their Ph.D. thesis in the N&N Group! We hope you enjoy your stay with us!
Ma Zheng: BSc. Electronic Information Science and Technology at Taishan University (Taian, China) and MSc. Condensed Matter Physics at University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC, Chengdu, China). His Ph.D. thesis topic will be “Physics of ε-Fe2O3” supervised by Martí Gich.
Irene Anton: BSc.Biotechnology at Universitat de Barcelona and MSc. Biomedical Research at Universitat Pompeu Fabra. She will work on “Functionalized bacterial cellulose for skin tissue regeneration” with Anna Roig and Anna Laromaine.
Soledad Roig: BSc. Chemistry at Universidad de Valencia and MSc. Nanoscience, Materials and Processes at Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Research work at Northeastern University, USA). During her Ph.D. she will work on “Engineering bacterial cellulose nanocomposites” with Anna Roig and Anna Laromaine.
Yajie Zhang: BSc. Applied Chemistry at the Institute of Surface Micro and Nanomaerials at Xuchuang University (China) and MSc. Applied Chemistry in the Key Laboratory Marine Chemistry and Technology, at Ocean University of China, and will work on “Nanocapsules as drug delivery carriers for pro-angiogenic therapies” with Anna Roig and Anna Rosell (Vall d’Hebron Research Institute (VHIR)).
Zhongrui Luo: BSc. Bioengineering at Nanjing Agricultural University (China) and MSc. Applied Chemistry at Yunnan University (China). His Ph.D. research will be on “Assessment of nanoparticles toxicity using C. elegans as model organism”, with Anna Laromaine.
Carles Rubio has just finished the third year of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology degree in the UAB. This summer, he will work in the synthesis of iron oxide with metalic dopping under the supervision of Marti Gich.
Martí Gibert, has just finished the first year of Nanocience and Nanotechnology in the UAB. This summer will work on a project about gelification and cristalization of SiO2 under the supervision of Marti Gich.
Carla has just finished the second year of Nanocience’s and Nanotechnology at the UAB. This summer she has joined our group for a summer project on Janus nanoparticles under the supervision of Dra. Anna Roig.
Maria is a biochemist that obtained a Phd in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the UAB. She joints us to be our expert in cell culture studies. She will work in several group projects but very directly in the European Commission funded project “Interactions in Three-dimensional (3D) in vitro environments of Nanoparticles and Cells” lead by Anna Laromaine.
Si Ming has joined us for the next three years as a CSC fellow. He is a gradute in Food Engineering from the South China University of Technology in Guangzhou and will prepare a Ph.D. on the Interactions in Three-dimensional environments of Nanoparticles and Cells under the supervision of Anna Laromaine. We wish him a great success with his work and an enriching personal experience among us.
