Short bio

After completion of her BSc in Physics at the Universitat de Barcelona  in February 2003, Neus began her PhD under the supervision of Prof. Victor F. Puntes at the Universitat de Barcelona, being awarded a University Staff Training Fellowship (FPI) from the Spanish Ministry of Education. Her research then was focused on the synthesis and functionalization of metal nanoparticles for biomedical applications. In December 2008, Neus received her Ph.D. degree in Physics from the University of Barcelona, Cum Laude. In January 2009, she joined the Physical-chemistry Department at the University of Hamburg under the supervision of Prof. Horst Weller founded by a Beatriu de Pinos Fellowship. There she became familiar with the synthesis of semiconductor nanocrystals and metal-semiconductor hybrid nanostructures for energy and biomedical applications. In May 2011, Neus joined Inorganic Nanoparticles Group at the ICN as a senior postdoc researcher.
