About

I received my Master’s degree in analytical chemistry from the “Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Rennes”, France in 2004 and specialized in physico-chemical characterization of cultural heritage materials. In 2009, I received my European PhD in Chemical Sciences from the University Complutense of Madrid. I carried out my PhD Thesis within the framework of the European Project "Advanced Research Training the Conservation of Cultural Heritage" (Marie Curie, MEST-CT-2004-513915), at the "Instituto de Química Física Rocasolano", Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). The work carried out involved the completion of new schemes of laser processing of biopolymers of interest in the conservation of the cultural heritage and samples of tempera, for the analysis and the cleaning of artistic surfaces with laser. Since 2010, I have worked as a conservation scientist in the laboratory of the "Museo Nacional del Prado". My research activities are focused on the characterization of organic materials present in artworks; optimization of procedures for analysis by chromatographic techniques (GCMS and HPLC) for the identification of drying oils, waxes, terpenic resins, protein materials, polysaccharides and organic dyes.
