Dr. Ana Isabel Borrás Martos

Since 2011, Ana Borrás (Seville, 1980) holds a tenured position in the Spanish National Scientific Council (CSIC). After completing her Ph. D. in the University of Seville (2007) she moved to EMPA-ETH Thun to work in the synthesis of small-molecule nanowires and organic nanocomposite thin films. She currently belongs to the Nanotechnology on Surfaces Laboratory of the Materials Science Institute of Seville (ICMS) where she leads the research line Multifunctional One Dimensional Nanomaterials devoted to the development and applications of complex hybrid and heterostructured 1D and 3D materials fabricated by vacuum and plasma deposition methods.
