Íngrid is originally from Sant Quirze del Vallès, a village next to Barcelona. She was graduated from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB, Cerdanyola del Vallès)  in Physics.  During those years she developed a strong interest in the science of light and after an internship in the research center of The Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO, Castelldefels) she decided to become a photonic engineer. In 2015 she started the European Master of Science in Photonics at Gent University (UGent, Belgium).  One year later, she moved to Germany to carry out her thesis about organic photovoltaics at  Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT, Karlsruhe). In 2017  she was graduated from Gent University with an MSc.

She fell in love with the city and the people of Gent, so just like that, Íngrid tackled a new adventure in Gent becoming a Ph.D. student in the Liquid Crystal and Photonics (LCP) group. 

Íngrid's research focus on developing a microscope-based technique to characterize on a particle-by-particle basis and simultaneously  size, intensity and  zeta-potential measurements by evaluating the electrophoretic mobility of individual micro- and  nano- particles.

In her research, she is targeting for biomedical and pharmaceutical applications.

Outside her job, she enjoys sports and nature the most: swimming, waterpolo, dancing, climbing, biking and hiking with her dog.  

Chocolate drives her crazy (gek)!
