Carmina Verdiá, is postdoctoral in the Small Biosystems Laboratory, at University of Barcelona. She graduates in Chemistry and holds a Master Degree in Applied Chemistry and Pharmacology.
During her PhD, she investigated different membrane transport systems by means of electrophysiological experiments, specifically by means of ion channel reconstitution in planar lipid bilayers using Voltage-Clamp technique. She focused on the ion transport of several types of proteins membranes pores forming peptides, like bacterial porins or viral proteins known as viroporins as well as the translocation of amphiphilic compounds across lipid membranes.
In 2015 she obtained the PhD degree and started to work in the University of Valencia designing voltage multipliers with nanofluidic diodes immersed in aqueous salt solutions.
