Eva María Villar Álvarez

Postdoctoral Researcher

I graduated in Physics at the University of Santiago of Compostela (USC) in 2010. Then, I joined the Colloids and Polymers Physics Group (GFCP) of the USC headed by Prof. V. Mosquera, and Prof. P. Taboada-Antelo. During that period my main research was focused on the study on the development of biocompatible polymeric, metallic or hybrid nanostructured materials for theranostics applications, combining several therapies (chemotherapy, photothermal, photodynamic and/or interference therapy (RNAi), for the treatment of common diseases, such as cancer, Alzheimer or diabetes. In addition, I did some collaborations with different national and international groups studying polymeric systems as solution modifiers for ink-jet printing or developing biosensors, among others. At the end of that period, I earned my PhD in Material Science at USC in 2018. Currently, I joined to the ICN2 Nanosfun group with a postdoctoral Juan de la Cierva fellowship.
