María Dolores Merchán Moreno is an associate professor at the Physical Chemistry department, University of Salamanca since 1999. She obtained her PhD in Chemistry at the University of Salamanca, and the doctoral thesis about Thermoprogrammed desorption in solution resulted in two patents. She continued her postdoctoral studies with a stay at the Institute of Catalysis and Petrochemistry of the CSIC of one year and with six months at the Chemical Engineering department of the University of New Hampshire.
She has participed as research in several projects by Ministerio de Educación y Ciencia and Ciencia e Innovación in the field of the Colloid and interface chemistry. Actually, she develop her research in the stability, structure and properties of 3D and 2D self-assemblies of surfactant, polymers and nanoparticles.
