Beatriz Martín-García received her M. Sc. degree in Chemical Engineering in February 2008 from the University of Salamanca (Spain). Then, she began her research training at the Physical Chemistry Department receiving her Ph.D. degree in May 2013 from the same University, carrying out a research fellowship stay at the Molecular Photochemistry Group at the Instituto Superior Tecnico of Lisbon (Portugal). She joined to the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in March 2014 after a postdoctoral research contract at the University of Salamanca in the framework of a collaborative University-Company Project. During her research career she has worked in the synthesis, preparation and physicochemical characterization of different nanomaterials at interfaces such as polymers, quantum dots and graphene-based nanomaterials.
At the IIT-Graphene Labs she is involved in the development of solution-processable strategies based on colloidal quantum dots-graphene hybrid materials for opto-electronic and photovoltaic applications. Her research is focused on the nanocomposites preparation and study of their properties, using absorption and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy and charge transport measurements, since the understanding of their opto-electronic and transport properties is paramount to achieve improvements for the development of devices.
