Raquel E. Galian

Dr. Galian received her PhD in Chemistry at the Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, Argentina in 2001. Then, she was a postdoctoral researcher (2001-2006) at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Universidad de Valencia (Spain) and University of Ottawa (Canada).

During those years, she has studied photosensibilization processes by aromatic ketones using laser flash photolysis techniques and was involved in the functionalization of photonic crystal fiber with semiconductor nanocrystals.

In 2007, Dr Galian was awarded with a Ramon y Cajal contract and came back to Spain to study the surface chemistry of luminescent CdSe and CdSe/ZnS Quantum Dots for sensing applications.

In 2012, she obtained a Senior Researcher position at UV General Foundation and worked in the preparation of colloidal luminescent nanostructures based on perovskites and novel hybrid nanomaterials.

Since 2017 she has a permanent position at the University of Valencia as Researcher.

Her main interest is the design, synthesis and characterization of emissive semiconductor nanoparticles and multifunctional nanoplatforms for sensing, photocatalysis and electroluminescent applications. In addition, she is also interested in the biocompatibilization of nanoparticles with mesoporous silica shell and biopolymers for photodynamic therapy.

She has many contributions in the area of nanomaterials (90 % in Q1) as corresponding author and two Book Chapters contributions. She has more than hundred contributions in National and International Conferences and several Invited talks at the City University of Hong Kong (Hong Kong), Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, Buenos Aires y Santiago del Estero (Argentina), Università degli Studi della Basilicata (Italy), University of Wuppertal and University Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Germany).

Currently, she is Guess Editor of the Special Issue “Synthesis and applications of nanomaterials based on perovskites” in Nanomaterials Journal.
