Final-year student of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), Irene Gimeno has been focused in science areas since secondary school, basically because it is a field she is really passionate about. Nevertheless, she is also curious about other related areas, like science communication and popularization. The study of a novel field as nanotechnology has driven her to both trying to understand the fundamentals of this area, and to know the tools to communicate its discoveries and innovations in an effective way. In this sense, within UbiK she has found the perfect tool for achieving this multidisciplinary profile.
