María Lorena Gomez

University of Río Cuarto, Argentina

María Lorena Gomez is an Independent Researcher at IITEMA-CONICET at the University of Río Cuarto. She obtained her degrees in Chemist in 2000 and her PhD in Chemistry in 2005, both from the University of Río Cuarto. In 2002 she was awarded with a Fellowship of the Interuniversity Consortium Chemistry for the Environment (INCA) from September to December in Ca’ Foscari University, Venice, Italy. Under the auspices of CONICET she was awarded a two years Post-Doc fellowship (2006-2008) at the University of Mar del Plata, where she further worked as Assistant Researcher in the Polymer´s Group of INTEMA-UNMDP until 2010.

In 2011 she returned to University of Río Cuarto as Adjunct Researcher where she started with a new research area based in the development of hybrid materials containing silsesquioxanes with technological applications. In 2015 she was promoted to Independent Researcher. She is an Active member of the Argentinean Association of Physical Chemistry Research (AAIFQ). She is currently research director of undergraduate and graduate students and head of projects funded by CONICET and ANPCYT.
