Maria obtained her 5 year degree in Chemistry in 2013 at Valencia University. As part of her degree, she spent a year as an Erasmus student at Loughborough University, working on triazole synthesis under the supervision of Dr. Benjamin Buckley. Later that year, she began her PhD researching the next generation of smart prosthetics by using surface chemistry for neuronal guidance.
