Biography

Anabel was born in Laguna Larga (Córdoba, Argentina). She obtained her BSc in Chemistry degree from the National University of Córdoba in 2007 and went on working for the R&D division of Genbra Argentina S.A. in the field of agricultural sciences. In 2008, she was awarded the prestigious PhD fellowship from CONICET to pursue her graduate studies. Part of her studies were carried out at the University of Johannesburg (South Africa) and at the University of Valencia (Spain). She received her PhD in Chemistry with honours from the National University of Córdoba in 2013. After that, Anabel spent a short time as a postdoctoral fellow at Rhodes University (South Africa) and at the National University of Córdoba working in the development of new coated magnetic particles in Langmuir monolayers model membranes. At the end of 2013, Anabel moved to Canada to work as a postdoctoral fellow under the supervision of Prof. Tito Scaiano. Since then, she has developed her expertise in the field of heterogeneous photocatalysis. Three years later, she was hired as a Research Associate to help Prof Scaiano running a group of more than 10 researchers. In 2020, she joined the University of Nottingham as an Assistant Professor.

Current Research

The group is focussed on the rational design of heterogeneous photocatalysts based on earth-abundant, inexpensive and stable materials. Our interests range from developing fundamental knowledge about the relationship between materials properties and their efficiencies to materials design for potential large-scale applications.
