Degree in Chemistry and in Art History (both in University of Barcelona, Spain). Master in Polymers and Biopolymers in Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Spain. During my PhD (2016, Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Spain) I was specialized in the analysis of organic materials from cultural heritage objects, in particular in the molecular characterization, alterations and aging processes of natural products like natural resins and drying oils. The main analytical techniques I have used are vibrational spectroscopies (micro-FTIR and micro-Raman) assessed with complementary analytical techniques and using also the synchrotron sources of Diamond Light Source (UK) and ALBA Synchrotron Light Facility (Spain). From 2016 to 2019 I had a post-doctoral project in the laboratory IPANEMA (CNRS, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, France) centered in the study of the chemical composition and the structure of varnishes from historical musical instruments using micro-FTIR combined with the synchrotron source in Soleil Synchrotron (France). I also collaborated with other projects developed in Ipanema about the characterization of archaeological samples and fossils. In 2019 I have started a postdoc in the (electro)chemical analysis' lab of Prof. dr. Karolien De Wael (AXES research group, University of Antwerp, Belgium) centered in the analysis of samples from historical altarpieces and the degradation of pigments used in historical paintings using vibrational spectroscopic techniques.
