Former PhD student at the ICN2, in Prof. Merkoçi’s group.

Dr Daniel Quesada developed his thesis work on “Design and application of nanomaterial-based lateral flow devices” in the ICN2 Nanobioelectronics and Biosensors Group, led by ICREA Prof. Arben Merkoçi. This research earned him the Extraordinary Doctorate Prize in Chemistry 2018-2019 of the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB).

The UAB Extraordinary Doctorate Prizes are awarded to graduate students across all the areas of the Doctoral Programme among all the theses defended in an academic year (one prize for every five theses), without the doctor being required to apply for it.
