Teresa is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Nanoscience Institute of Aragon (INA) in Zaragoza. She is working in a company-sponsored project since January 2015, involved in the development of nanomaterials for technological applications.
She obtained her M.Sc. in Chemistry at the University of Salamanca where she carried out her PhD in the Physical Chemistry Department working in the Colloids and Interfaces Group. She studied thin films of Quantum Dot assembled with surfactants and polymers. During her PhD she developed photochemistry studies through a research stay in the Instituto Superior Tecnico of Lisbon, and she also did a short stay in Complex Systems Group at Complutense University of Madrid. She got a fellowship in the International Nanotechnology Laboratory in Braga (Portugal) where she complemented her knowledge and expertise in the field of nanomaterials. She obtained her PhD in Chemistry in July 2014, after that she joined INA where she is currently developing her career as a researcher.
