Cintia Casado studied chemical engineering at the Rey Juan Carlos University, between September 2004 - July 2010. During this period she did the end of degree research project in the degradation of naproxen and carbamazepine with microbiological treatments, a research project during the academic practices based on the separation operation more suitable for a glycol-water mixture, and during her stay course in Argentina, made a preliminary design of a water treatment plant for the city of San Lorenzo.
Then, she continued her studies at Rey Juan Carlos University with a Master degree in Technology and Energy Resources in the period 2010-2012. The topic of the Master thesis involved fabrication and characterization of heterojunction organic solar cells and development of photolithography patterns for further integration in a cell, in collaboration with the Institute IMDEA Nanoscience.
During this period she worked as a predoctoral assistant at IMDEA Nanoscience participating in the projects: Multifunctional Nanotechnology for Selective Detection and Treatment of Cancer, funded by the European Union and the Optimisation of functional nanoparticles as a novel, minimal -invasive and efficient therapy for targeting Cancer Stem Cell, funded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. This period resulted in three articles of which Cintia was the co-author, in addition to presenting her research at national conferences.
Today has started a doctorate at the University Rey Juan Carlos, in the elimination of emerging chemical and biological pollulants by integrated advanced biooxidation and photocatalytic processe for water regeneration. Specifically, right now, she is trying to simulate these processes with software.
