Sandra graduated with honours from the University of Basque country (Spain) in 2015, having completed her chemistry degree with a minor in polymer science. During her degree, she worked as an Undergraduate Research Assistant at the University synthesising graphene-silver nanohybrids and analysing its anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. She was also granted a scholarship to work as a researcher in the University of Texas at Austin for a period of 6 months with Professor Akinwande, where she was able to fabricate a novel 2D material, phosphorene, for microelectronics application. After her degree she was awarded the Santander scholarship to work in CIDETEC research center (Spain) in the development of single chain polymers and their application in drug delivery. After this, she was granted a KESS studentship to conduct her PhD with Dr. Bertoncello at Swansea University, developing nanocomposite materials for sensing applications and detection of food analytes and illicit drugs. In 2019, she started as a Postdoctoral researcher at ERSI building in Swansea University, working in the carbon capture and utilisation field in collaboration with multiple Welsh industries. She has participated in multiple international conferences and projects; and in 2020 she got awarded the Global Wales International Research Mobility Fund to facilitate research opportunities with the University of Alicante (Spain).
