Prof Bianchi Mendez
Bianchi Mendez has joined the Microscopy Group as Visiting Academic. She is Professor in Materials Science at Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain), where she works at the Physics of Electronic Nanomaterials Group. Her research focuses on the study of optical and electronic properties of electronic nanomaterials, with a particular attention to their relationship with their structural features. During the last ten years, her main attention has been the study of nanostructures based on semiconducting oxide materials, such as nanowires or nanobelts, with the aim to exploit their featured physical properties for future applications in sensor and energy devices.
