Current PhD students
I obtained my Bachelor’s (2017) and Master’s (2018) degree in chemistry at the University of the Balearic Islands. Then I started my PhD at the Supramolecular Chemistry group of the UIB under the supervision of Dr. Carmen Rotger and Dr. Bartolomé Soberats. My research activity focusses on the development of squaramide based supramolecular assemblies, such as hydrogels, supramolecular polymers, and liquid crystals. Our main interest rely on the development of stimuli responsive materials and que generation of supramolecular polymorphism. So far, I have published on 3 articles in peer reviewed journals and I attended 3 conferences where I presented posters.
I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Chemistry (2017) and master’s degree in Chemical Science and Technology (2018) at the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB). In September 2017 I obtained a 15-month contract as “Programa SOIB Joves Qualificats” of the “Govern de les Illes Balears” as a technician. In December 2018 I started my PhD at the University of Balearic Islands under the supervision of Dr. Bartolomé Soberats and Dr. Carmen Rotger. In September 2020 I was appointed Assistant Lecturer at the Department of Chemistry at the University. During this period, I carried out one predoctoral stay in Laboratory of Macromolecular and Organic Materials (LMOM) at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) under supervision of Prof. Holger Frauenrath (July 2019 to September 2019). My PhD project focuses on two topics: development, synthesis and characterization of i) thermoplastic polymers and ii) uncommon assemblies in liquid-crystalline dyes.
My research experience began in the summer of 2018 when I obtained a collaborating student scholarship from the Ministerio de Educación y Cultura. During this period, I carried out a research project in the supramolecular chemistry group at the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) under the supervision of Prof. Antonio Costa. This research consisted of the design, synthesis and subsequent studies of systems based on cyclic squaramide’s for the formation of supramolecular aggregates. These results were presented in my baschelor thesis «Cyclic squaramide’s: synthesis and aggregation studies» which was defended in July 2019. I continued my studies at the University of Barcelona where I carried out the master’s degree on the topic of “Fawcettimine Lycopodium Alkaloids” in the Sintefarma group under the tutelage of Rosa Griera. Currently, I am carrying out my PhD studies (FPI-CAIB research fellow) in the supramolecular chemistry group at the UIB under the supervision of Dr. Bartolome Soberats. My PhD project focusses on the development of non-conventional liquid crystals systems for optoelectronic applications.
