Cristina Cebrián Ávila
Cristina Cebrián was born on July 16th 1984 in Ayora (Valencia, Spain). In 2002 she finished her highschool studies in Nature Science modality at I. E. S. Bonifacio Sotos (Casas Ibáñez, Spain) with distinction. In the same year, she also participated in the XVth Spanish Olympic Games of Chemistry where she won a gold medal. Then, she started to study Chemistry in Ciudad Real (University of Castilla-La Mancha), where she obtained her degree in 2007. In the same university, she initiated her Ph. D. (FPU Fellowship) within the graduate program Sustainable Chemistry under the supervision of Prof. Ángel Díaz and Dr. Pilar Prieto.
She is currently finishing her project thesis on the design, synthesis and characterization of new 1,2,4-triazole derivatives with application as new materials. It is worth to mention that she has extensively used microwave irradiation or solventless reactions, among others, in order to improve the sustainability of the synthetic processes. Moreover, she has performed three short predoctoral stays. She spent 4 months at Prof. Cossío´s group in San Sebastián (UPV-EHU, Spain), where she started to work on theoretical calculations. On the other hand, two additional stays of 6 and 2 months, respectively, in Prof. De Cola´s group in Münster (WWU, Germany) allowed her to move into the organometallic field. There, she was involved in the development of new electroluminescent materials based on non-iridium systems for application in Organic Light-Emitting Devices (OLEDs), as a part of the BMBF project titled So-Light.
