Miriam joins the group!

We are pleased to welcome a new postdoc to the Ameloot group!

Miriam de J. Velasquez-Hernandez received her PhD degree from the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM). During her doctoral studies, she explored the synthesis of hydrogen-bonded organic frameworks (HOFs) using organo-bis(silane-triols) as molecular building blocks. Then, she joined Graz University of Technology (TU Graz, Austria) as a CONACyT postdoctoral fellow, where she explored the synthesis of MOF-based biocomposites for drug delivery applications. Subsequently, she studied the fabrication of oriented MOF films and patterns for optical devices.

In the Ameloot group, her research will be focused on the synthesis and in-situ characterization of MOFs for multi-component separation. Simultaneously, she will explore the ceramic to MOF vapor-phase transformation.

A warm welcome to Miriam!
