29th October - Newcomers Seminars: “Advanced Materials for Optoelectronics and Energy” and “Design of functional nanomaterials for catalytic and biomedical applications”

Newcomers Seminars aims is that every new researcher (postdoctoralsenior or senior assistant) will have the opportunity to introduce his/her selfto IMDEA staff. Due to the increased number of postdoctoral researcherswhich have enjoy the IMDEA energy family along the last year, we havedecided to change a little bit the Newcomers seminar structure. Thus, sinceNovember 2021 the session will be composed by two talks 25 min each with5-10 min each for questions, giving the opportunity to two postdoctoralresearchers to introduce their-self and also to show us their line of researchand interests.

The Newcomers seminar of October will be celebrate 29th October at noon in the Auditorium. At the same time and on line link will be accessible.

The first speaker will be Dr Miguel García-Tecedor, from Photoactivated Processes Unit, with the talk entitle “Advanced Materials for Optoelectronics and Energy”.

The second one will be Dra Catalina Biglione, from  Advanced Porous Materials Unit,  “Design of functional nanomaterials for catalytic and biomedical applications”.

Dr. Miguel García Tecedor: “Advanced Materials for Optoelectronics and Energy”

Postdoctoral researcher in Photoactivated Process Unit. He works in IMDEA Energy since March 2021. He has a deep interest in the defective structure of semiconductor oxides, and the possibility of tuning them for different energy related applications, such as water splitting and CO2 reduction, and energy transport, such as waveguides and optical resonators.

In this talk, the synthesis, characterization and different optoelectronic and (photo)electrocatalytic applications of some semiconducting metal oxides will be discussed.

 

Dra. Catalina Biglione: Design of functional nanomaterials for catalytic and biomedical applications”

Summary

"During my studies, I have the opportunity to work in the field of nanomaterials. First, I developed core-shell nanoparticles with a magnetic core and a palladium shell. These materials were tested as nanocatalyst for C-C coupling reaction. Then, during my PhD, I focused my research in the design of thermoresponsive and magnetic nanogels as smart drug delivery systems. Finally, I studied the synthesis of novel magnetoplasmonic nanoparticles for phototherapy".
