Noelia Maldonado studied chemistry at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (2011– 2015). Afterwards, she worked at the Servicio Interdepartamental de Investigación (2015-2017) of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) and finished her MSc in chemical science and technology at the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED) in agreement with UAM (2018). Currently, she is doing her PhD on gels and 3D printed materials based on coordination polymers at the Nanomaterials Group.
As complementary training, she obtained certificates in Basic Techniques in Forensic Biology and Applied Forensic Toxicology (Department of Toxicology and Health Legislation at the Faculty of Medicine at the UCM), Management and quality control of drinking water for human consumption (UNED), Strategies for the Communication and Dissemination of Science in Primary and Secondary Education (UAM), Structure of materials (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MIT), Applications of Nanoscience in Chemistry, Medicine and Environment (UNED), Structural analysis by X-ray diffraction of monocrystalline samples (School of X-ray Crystallography and ISQCH), Python: Absolute Beginners (Microsoft); Python: Fundamentals (Microsoft) and Leadership oriented towards human flourishing (Tecnológico de Monterrey).
Currently, she combines research activity with divulgation activity, by organizing and implementing scientific workshops in schools for children and adolescents, within the framework of the project “Conocer la Ciencia Hoy abre las Puertas del Mañana” subsidized by the Spanish Foundation of Science and Technology (FECYT), the Royal Spanish Society of Chemistry (Territorial Section of Madrid) and by the company NanoInnova Techologies. Among all the events held in public and private schools and high schools since 2018, the Nuclear Energy Industry Forum at the Lienzo Norte de Ávila Exhibition and Congress Center, and “Las Mil Caras de The Periodic Table” at the auditorium of the Faculty of Biology of the UAM are the most remarkable.
