I own a Chemist degree and a Master degree in Chemical Sciences and Technologies with specialization in Electron Microscopy and Nanomaterials. Recently, I have finished my PhD thesis entitled "New ecosustainable building materials by their superhydrophobic behaviour".
During the last five years, I have worked at the Nanomaterials researcher group from the University of Cádiz (headed by Prof. Maria J. Mosquera), which designs products for the protection and restoration of building materials. Throughout these five years, I have collaborated with two national projects from the Spanish government and an European project. Moreover, I have participated in research projects with the companies COSENTINO and NATURAL STONE TINO, with the aim of enhancing the properties of their materials.
I also have experience in the field of teaching and dissemination, since during my PhD period I gave classes as well as supervised two bachelor degree projects and two master degree projects. In addition, I have presented the results of my research in national and international conferences
Technical support to the Nanomaterials researcher group from the University of Cádiz. Specifically, the following tasks have been carried out:
Colaboration with the R&D department of COSENTINO company for enhancing the cleaning performance of the SILESTONE marbles. Specifically, hydrophobic products to improve the stain resistance of these surfaces have been developed.
Development of consolidant, superhydrophobic and photocatalytic products to protect and repair building materials.
This work was carried out into a national project from the Spanish government.
