Is vice-President of the Spanish Network of Microsystems and Nanotechnology (IBERNAM) and deputy director of the Instituto de Nanociencia y Materiales de Aragón (CSIC-Unizar). She has co-authored over 80 peer-reviewed journal papers, 7 book chapters and holds 4 patents. Principal investigator of over 30 regional, national and international competitive projects and research contracts (a dozen related to Security and Defence Applications). Her research efforts are focused on the development of microdevices for the molecular recognition of hazardous compounds and toxic chemicals at trace level where pre-concentration, orthogonal detection and identification using SERS Spectroscopy (Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy) are carried out. Her main contributions involve the use of ordered nanoporous materials, i.e. zeolites, M41S and MOFs, in combination with metallic nanostructures to promote synergetic effects. This line arises from the need to create multi-sensor platforms that are not only sensitive, robust, fast and low cost, but also highly selective, capable of discriminating the analyte of interest in complex mixtures.
