Edurne González Gandara earned her BS and MS in Chemical Science from the University of the Basque Country (UPV-EHU). During this period, she spent an academic year in Manchester Metropolitan University (Manchester, UK) as Erasmus student where she carried out a project based on the antibacterial properties of paints containing TiO2 photocatalyst. She has participated in the V Conference of Young researchers of Polymers (JIP2010) and she has given oral presentations in different Industrial Liaison Program meetings.
Now she is a 3th year PhD student in the chemical engineering group in the University of the Basque Country. Her research is focussed on the fundamental investigation of waterborne polymers with special attention to the influence of functional hairs on film formation and properties.
