Postdoctoral Researchers

Sonia Bajo

I studied Chemistry at the University of Valladolid. Then I moved to the University of Zaragoza and  joined the group of Prof. Miguel Angel Esteruelas to work on the preparation and characterisation of organometallic and inorganic compounds and on the study of their reactivity toward organic molecules obtaining a PhD Distinction. After that, I moved to the UK as a postdoctoral researcher joining the group of Dr. David Nelson in the Department of Pure & Applied Chemistry at the University of Strathclyde. My research there focused on the study of fundamental processes in cross-coupling nickel catalysis using organometallic chemistry and spectroscopic methods. Back to Spain I joined the group of  Prof. Miguel Angel Esteruelas again to work on the synthesis of iridium complexes and their application as OLEDs. Now at sunny Sevilla, besides being a postdoc, she has recently been declared the group party/festivities organizer.

PhD students

Marina Pérez Jiménez (shared with Prof. Carmona)

I graduated in Chemistry in 2016, obtaining the University of Sevilla Extraordinary Prize. The following year I completed my Master Thesis on Organometallic Chemistry and Homogeneous Catalysis and in late 2017 I was awarded a FPU Fellowship to conduct my PhD studies under the supervision of Jesús Campos and Ernesto Carmona. I am currently enjoying the beauty and friskiness of multiply bonded dimolibdenum complexes.

Juan Miranda (Juanín)

I am working on my PhD thesis in the Organometallic Chemistry and Homogeneous Catalysis group in a thrilling project based on intercluster and supramolecular chemistry since January 2017. I was previously associated to the Mechanochemistry and Materials Reactivity group for my End of Degree project (Chemistry Degree) and my Master Thesis (Master Degree in Materials Science).

Nereida Hidalgo Reinoso

I am a third-year PhD student, loving the craziness of Organometallic Chemistry. I am currently developing Frustrated Lewis Pairs based on Transition Metals for the activation of small molecules.

Macarena González Alférez 

I am a Chemistry graduate from the University of Sevilla, currently a first-year PhD student working on Frustrated Lewis Pairs based on Transition Metals for bond activation and catalysis applications. I previously carried out my Masters project (TFM) in the group, also working with TM-FLPs.

Lab Manager

Carlos Navarro Gilabert

I am an awesome Lab Technician who has been working at IIQ for seven years, now taking care of all these guys that you see above me.


JUAN JOSÉ MORENO DÍAZ (PhD Feb 2019) –  Currrently a postdoc at the University of Virginia in the group of Charles Machan.
