Ameloot Group welcomes Priss and Victor!
Priscilla Rocío-Bautista completed her Bachelor degree in Chemistry in 2012, and her Master degree in Chemistry in 2013, both at the University of La Laguna (ULL), Spain. She is currently a PhD student in analytical chemistry at the QAAMA group (https://ginqaama.webs.ull.es/index.htm), holding a FPI research fellowship (Project Ref. MAT2014-57465-R). Her research focuses on the use of metal-organic frameworks and other hybrid materials, including magnetic composites, in miniaturized devices and platforms for in situ environmental monitoring through integrated analytical microextraction approaches. During her stay in the Ameloot Group, she will study different deposition strategies of MOFs over metallic surfaces in an attempt to obtain MOF-based microextraction devices. Víctor Rubio-Giménez graduated in Chemistry at the University of València (https://www.uv.es/uvweb/college/en/university-valencia-1285845048380.html) in 2012 after an Erasmus research stay at Imperial College London (http://www.ch.ic.ac.uk/long/index.html). In 2014 he obtained a master degree in Molecular Nanoscience & Nanotechnology at the University of València and then received a FPU PhD grant from the Spanish government. His current work at the UIMM (http://www.icmol.es/uimm) and Funimat (http://www.icmol.es/funimat/index.php) research teams focuses on the preparation of programmable SURMOF architectures and the study of their electronic properties. During his stay, Víctor will work exploring the fabrication of ultrathin films of electrically conductive MOFs via CVD to fabricate MOF-based electronic devices.
