Multidisciplinary team with combined expertise in the development of miniaturized power sources, immunoassay and analytical systems
Dr. Castellarnau has long experience in the development of analytical systems, ranging from biosensors to lab-on-a-chip devices, and more recently, in implementing self-powered and autonomous platforms for diagnostics.
Dr. Pla-Roca holds a PhD in Inorganic Chemistry and has broad interdisciplinary experience in microfabrication, microfluidics, chemical modification of surfaces, inkjet printing, 3D printing and automation of miniaturized immunoassays for biomarker detection.
Dr. Gonzalez-Valls has a background in Material Science and Organic Chemistry, with an extensive knowledge in materials preparation and characterization, prototyping and reel-to-reel processes.
Dr. Castillo has a background in Electronics and Biomedical Engineering, with experience in electronic instrumentation and microfluidics to develop µTAS. In the last few years, he has been involved in technology transfer projects from university to industry.
Dr. Llordés holds a PhD in Chemistry with strong background in Material Science. She has broad experience developing novel materials for their integration in energy-related devices, such as electrochromic smart windows or solid-state rechargeable batteries. Her background skills include: surface chemistry, thin films & coatings, interfaces, nanomaterials, electrochemistry, ion transport and structure-properties relationships.
He graduated in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB). On his last year, he specialized in environmental science and nanobiology and performed his degree final project about biodegradable batteries in the National Centre of Microelectronics of Barcelona (CNM-IMB).
