Tenured Scientist

2D Foundry

Dr. Beatriz H. Juárez studies colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals and hybrid structures from the point of view of their synthesis and functionality. Her career combines nine years of university teaching as associated professor at the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM), with scientific activity developed at different centres, such as The Materials Science Institute of Madrid (ICMM) as a predoctoral fellow, the University of Hamburg as a postdoc EIF Marie Curie or the IMDEA Nanoscience Foundation hired by the "Ramón y Cajal" programme. Her scientific contributions include those that report pioneering functional nanostructures. Among them, the study of photodetectors based on 2D PbS nanocrystals, or hybrid nanostructures composed of CdSe nanocrystals and graphitic structures with photocurrent generation capacity. Her most recent research activities focus on the preparation of nanostructures with thermal sensing capacity at the nanoscale, for applications in nanomedicine. She is co-author of more than 50 international articles in indexed journals and three patents. She received the young researcher award from the consortium of German Nanotechnology Centres (AGeNT-D).
