Research

I am working in the the DEBottlenecking Of Chromatographic Separations (DEBOCS) project in collaboration with the University of Amsterdam. This project aims to develop microfluidic devices to decrease the LCxLC analysis time and to improve the modulation of the sample. Also, it is focused in the implementation of polymer monoliths and the use of these devices in the separation of complex pharmaceutical samples (i.e. proteins, peptides and oligonucleotides).
