Short Bio

Carolina Vargas-Estevez holds a degree in Electronic Engineering from the National University of Colombia, with a master's degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Madrid.

In 2013, she obtained the FPI scholarship from the CSIC to carry out her doctorate at the Barcelona Microelectronics Center (CNM-CSIC), obtaining the title of doctor in Nanosciences (Universitat de Barcelona), with international mention and cum laude, with her thesis titled "Suspended micro/nanogenerators for cellular stimulation."

Throughout her career, she has undertaken several external research placements in the United States, Switzerland, and the UK, with a focus on the characterization of magnetoelectric materials. In 2019, she joined the Center for Research and Development of Medical Devices in Ireland (CURAM-NUIG) as a postdoctoral researcher where she was researching organic generators for cardiac monitoring devices. Subsequently, in 2021, she joined the Central European Institute of Technology (CEITEC-VUT) in Czech Republic to work on nano and microrobotics for environmental decontamination and biomedicine applications.

Most recently, she joined UPC as a postdoctoral researcher, where she works in the group led by Professor Jose Manuel Garcia, focusing on magnetoelectric 3D hydrogels for applications in bioengineering.
