Short CV/Education and training

  • Libertat Abad received a degree in physics and a PhD in material sciences (2007) at the Barcelona Materials Science Institute (ICMAB-CSIC) and Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (Spain).

  • She worked in magnetic materials and spintronics devices. She then moved to Institute Néel-CNRS (France), where she worked for two years in in microand nano-fabrication techniques, biosensors and polymeric materials. Since 2010, she is one of the senior postdoctoral researchers of the BioMEMS group at the IMB-CNM, CSIC.

  • Her main areas of expertise include micro and nano-fabrication techniques, development of magnetic biosensors, nanocalorimetric devices, low-cost microfluidics and implementation of new materials with potential interest in the field of biosensors development.
