Dr. Jessica Rodríguez-Fernández joins CeNS as Extraordinary Member
Jessica Rodríguez-Fernández studied Chemistry at the University of Vigo (Spain), where she graduated with Honors in 2004. In the same year she joined the Colloidal Chemistry Group of Prof. Luis M. Liz-Marzán (University of Vigo) for her PhD as a fellow of the Spanish Ministry of Science (FPU fellow). Her PhD focused on the synthesis, reactivity and optical studies of gold nanoparticles of various shapes. During her PhD Jessica was also several-month visiting researcher at the Nanoscience Group of Prof. Paul Mulvaney (School of Chemistry & Bio 21 Institute, The University of Melbourne, Australia) and the Soft Condensed Matter Group of Prof. Jan K. Dhont (Institute of Solid State Research, Jülich Forschungszentrum, Germany). In September 2008 Jessica was awarded her PhD and in November 2008 she joined the Photonics and Optoelectronics Group (PhOG) of Prof. Jochen Feldmann (Physics Department & CeNS, LMU Munich) as a postdoctoral researcher. Since July 2009 Jessica heads the chemistry laboratory and since April 2011 she is group leader on "Functional Nanoparticles & Nanostructures" research at PhOG. Her research interests span from functional nanoparticles to hybrid nanocomposites, nanostructures and functional assemblies with appealing optical properties for applications ranging from optics, to photocatalysis, photovoltaics or biology.
