Carmen Montoro received her B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering at the Universidad de Granada (Spain). In 2010, she joined prof. J. A. Rodriguez Navarro’s group, of the same University, to start working on the design, synthesis, and characterization of metal-organic open frameworks (MOFs) for environmental and industrial applications. In 2013, she obtained her PhD in Chemistry with the highest qualification (“Summa Cum Laude”) under the supervision of Prof. J. A. Rodriguez Navarro and Prof. E. Barea. Furthermore, she was awarded with an Accesit by the Royal Spanish Society of Chemistry (RSEQ) in the territorial section of Granada. During her Ph.D. studies, she carried out two short-term stays at the group of Prof. S. Kaskel (Technical University of Dresden, Germany) and Prof. J. Long (University of Berkeley, USA).
In 2015, she joined Prof. F. Zamora´s group of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid-UAM (Spain) awarded with a Juan de la Cierva post-doctoral grant from the Spanish Government. During this period, her research was focused on the study of two-dimensional materials with tunable properties and in the study of the ionic conductivity of crystalline porous materials for its use in alternative energies. In 2018, she was visiting professor during one year at the European Membrane Institute of the University of Montpellier where she specialized in membrane preparation.
Nowadays, she is Assistant Professor at the Department of Inorganic Chemistry of the UAM. Her research is focused on the synthesis and characterization of crystalline porous materials for water treatment.
