Short presentation

I am interested in self-associated lipid systems and surface chemistry. The use of surface sensitive techniques for the study of the properties of lipid membranes and their interactions with solutes is the main focus of my research. Among others, I apply electrochemical and nanogravimetric (QCM-D) methods to the study of lipid modified substrates and the interactions of lipid membranes with peptides, proteins and inorganic material.

Biography

I obtained the title of B.Sc. in Chemical Sciences from the Monterrey Institute of Technology, Monterrey, Mexico, in December 2002. After a brief experience at the industry (CEMEX, Mexico), in 2004 I moved to Germany to pursue Ph.D studies at the University of Greifswald, obtaining the degree of Dr. rer. nat. in Analytical Chemistry in 2008. My Ph.D. thesis focused on describing the mechanism of adhesion of giant unilamellar vesicles on mercury electrodes. In May 2008 I moved to Sweden to start a postdoc at Uppsala University, working in physical chemistry studies on the behavior of lipid membranes. Since 2013 I am a researcher at the Department of Chemistry-BMC at Uppsala University, where I was appointed as Associated Professor (Docent) in 2014. Currently, I am senior lecturer at the Department of Pharmacy, Uppsala University.
