Short Biography

Maria Cuartero was born in Murcia (Spain). She studied a BSc in Chemistry and MSc in Advanced Chemistry at the University of Murcia (Spain). Maria Cuartero obtained her PhD degree in 2014 and then, she moved to the University of Geneva (Switzerland) for a postdoctoral stage in the group of Prof. Eric Bakker (2014-2017). Since 2018, Maria Cuartero is developing her independent scientific career at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm (Sweden), first as Marie Curie fellow and now as Assistant Professor. Maria Cuartero research is mainly focused on the development of new fundamental concepts in electroanalysis based on interconnected ion-transfer and charge-transfer processes. Cuartero’s ideas have being funded by very prestigious grants, such as ERC-Starting Grant (European Research Council) and the Swedish VR-Starting Grant (Vetenskapsrådets). Other research interests comprise environmental water electroanalysis, enzymatic (bio)sensors, wearable sensors for healthcare, spectroelectrochemistry and scanning-electrochemical microscopy. Maria Cuarter is co- author of >80 peer-reviewed papers mainly in journals related to Analytical Chemistry and Electrochemistry fields.
