The award, delivered by the School for Doctoral Studies together with the UAB Alumni Association of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, demonstrates the appreciation for the effort and dedication of young researchers and their contribution to the generation of knowledge and advance in the different areas of the UAB. The award consists of a competitive call among the researchers whose doctoral thesis received the qualification of excellence "Cum Laude" from the thesis committee. The main value of the UAB is its human capital and the new doctors are an essential element for the continuation of excellent lines of research. That excellence is based on the quality of the PhDs as a distinctive indicator.
Civan’s PhD thesis (Material Science, 2018-2019), supervised by Dr. Inhar Imaz and Prof. Dr. Daniel Maspoch, is entitled “Zeolitic Imidazolate Framework-8: Control of particle size, and shape and its self-assembly”. Since finishing his thesis in ICN2, Civan has continued his research career as a Postdoctoral fellow in Sorbonne Université, France, his current position.
In addition, Ceren’s PhD thesis (Material Science, 2018-2019), supervised by Dr. Inhar Imaz and Prof. Dr. Daniel Maspoch, is entitled “Advances on the synthesis of MOFs at scale”. Since finishing her thesis in ICN2, Ceren has continued her research career as a Postdoctoral fellow in Cambridge University, United Kingdom, her current position.
Finally, Jorge’s PhD thesis (Chemistry, 2019-2020), supervised by Dr. Arnau Carné, Dr. Inhar Imaz and Prof. Dr. Daniel Maspoch, is entitled “Post-Synthetic Modification of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) and Polyhedra (MOPs)”. Since finishing his thesis in ICN2, Jorge has continued his research career as a Postdoctoral fellow in University of Adelaide, Australia, his current position.
