Almudena Marti Morant is a Research Fellow in Chemistry at the University of Southampton

Almudena Marti studied Chemistry at the Universitat de València (Spain). After being awarded her Bachelor degree in 2010 she gained her Master’s degree in Experimental and Industrial Organic Chemistry in July 2012. She was then awarded a Spanish government fellowship (FPI) to support her PhD. In 2015 she defended her PhD Thesis (Cum Laude) entitled “Functionalized Gold Nanoparticles for the detection of biologically active molecules” under the supervision of Prof. Pablo Gaviña Costero and Prof. Margarita Parra Alvárez.

From January 2016 to  November 2016 she was a Post-doctoral Fellow working on gold nanorods functionalized with pi-conjugated molecules at ENSCM–AM2N , in Montpellier, France, in the group of Prof. Françoise Spirau at the École Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Montpellier. During this period, she worked on the development of gold nanoobjects functionalized with π-conjugated molecules and studied the optoelectronic properties of these new materials. 

From December 2016 to November 2018 she worked as a Postdoctoral researcher at MnF, MESA + Institute for Nanotechnology at the University of Twente under the supervision of Prof Jurriaan Huskens. Her research focused on the development of a surface functionalization strategy for large scale applications, offering excellent control of surface density, prevention of non-specific interaction, and that is versatile in terms of the functional groups that can be attached. She was also involved in the Nanopil2.0 project for the early diagnosis of cancer biomarkers in urine. 

Since Jan 2018 Almudena has been at the University of Southampton as a Research Fellow working on surface immobilisation and assay development for infection diagnostics in the group of Phil N. Bartlett
