Lidia Ferrer is Technical Manager of Nanomol Technologies SL. She received her PhD in Chemistry from the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) in February 2016 with the Doctoral Thesis “Cholesterol and Compressed CO2: a Smart Molecular Building Block and Advantageous Solvent to Prepare Stable Self-assembled Colloidal Nanostructures”. Her PhD research was conducted in the Materials Science Institute of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) and was mainly focused on the development, functionalization and physicochemical characterization of QUATSUVS, a multifunctional platform based on Small Unilamellar Vesicles (SUVs) and nanoliposomes. Her thesis work involved the use of compressed fluid-based processes for the preparation of functional micro- and nanostructured molecular materials. Besides, during her PhD research, Lidia Ferrer enjoyed a doctoral stay at The University of Texas at Austin, in the McKetta Department of Chemical Engineering.
As technical manager she is responsible for the design, monitoring and evaluation of nanoprocessing experiments in the framework of national and international research projects devoted to the development of new nanomedicines by means of proprietary technology platforms.
