Núria Crivillers received her PhD Thesis in 2008 from the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) (Materials Science program from the University Autonomous of Barcelona). In 2009 she was awarded with an IEF Marie Curie Fellowship for a post-doctoral stay at the Institute de Science et d’Ingénierie Supramoléculaires (ISIS, University of Strasbourg, France) in the group of Prof. Paolo Samorì (2009-2011). In 2011 she returned back to ICMAB with a Juan de la Cierva and later with the prestigious Ramón y Cajal contract. Since April 2017 she has a permanent position as Tenured Scientist at ICMAB-CSIC. She has participated in several national and international projects. It is worth to highlight that she was the sole coordinator of a FET OPEN project for young Researchers (2014-2016). In 2013 she was awarded with the prize for Young Researcher of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry (RSEQ). This award is given annually to four young researchers in recognition of their scientific contributions in the different fields of chemistry. During her research career she has performed 8 stays in renowned national and international laboratories highlighting National University of Singapore (Graphene Center, 2014) and University of Twente (MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology, 2005). Currently, she is part of the Molecular Electronics and Devices group from the Molecular Nanoscience and Organic Materials department at ICMAB-CISIC.
Research Interest: N. Crivillers research efforts are currently devoted to the preparation of organic functional molecular materials for molecular electronics applications. She has a particular interest on the synthesis of novel organic radicals for exploring their magnetic and redox properties as potential key components in (spin)electronic devices. Currently, the use of liquid metals as alternative electrodes for studying charge transport across functional organic layers is one of her focus of research.
