Rosa Diego Creixenti
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry in June 2015 at the University of Barcelona after spend six-month of this period studding abroad in Uppsala University (Sweden). The principal subjects covered as an exchange student were Organic Synthesis in the Biomedicinskt Centrum (BMC) and the BSc. Degree project called “Development of tungsten-free phospha-Wittig reagents” joining the Dr Sascha Ott group in the research field of Molecular Biomimetic Inorganic Chemistry, Ångström Laboratory. Right after this, I had a one-month practice as a boarding student in the Organic Department of the Universitat de Barcelona accomplishing the synthesis of C75. Afterwards I started the master in Organic Chemistry (UB). In July 2016, I finished my MSc. Project with the title “Synthesis of 3-methyl-4-methylene-2-octyl-5-oxotetrahydrofuran-3-carboxylic acid, a C75 derivative with possible application in the treatment of obesity” in the Dr Jordi Garcia group under the supervision of Dr Paul-Lloyd Williams. Nowadays, I’m part of the GMMF group as a PhD student under the supervision of Dr Guillem Aromí (Inorganic Section) and Jordi Garcia (Organic Section) in order to develop my research on the synthesis and characterization of coordination compounds containing Fe for the Information Storage.
