  About me

Dr. Rodríguez-Gómez finished her Bachelor degree in Chemistry at the University of Granada in 2009. Throughout this year, she initiated a specialization as Higher Technician in Occupational Health and Safety, which terminated in 2010. During that period she rewarded an ECTS grant and also was part of a collaboration to develop a disposable electrochemiluminescent biosensor for the determination of uric acid in urine samples. In 2010, she gained a predoctoral fellowship for “Training Research and Teaching Staff” associated with the project of excellence of the Regional Government of Andalusia entitled “Biomonitorización de disruptores endocrinos químicos mediante técnicas separativas avanzadas”. Dr. Rodríguez-Gómez began her studies of Master Degree in Chemistry and as researcher at the FQM-338 group (Analytical Chemistry and Life Sciences). During the pre-doctoral period, her research was focused on the development and validation of analytical methods for the determination of endocrine disrupting chemicals in biological samples. In 2013, she made a research stay at the University of Cordoba, Spain for 3 months. Regarding to teaching field, she taught 170 hours of practical classes to students from several degrees and she was also co-supervisor for 4 students, Diploma and Master Thesis. In 2014, she obtained the Doctorate degree at the University of Granada. In 2015, she awarded a postdoctoral fellowship for 12 months under the project of excellence mentioned previously. The time between, she made 2 postdoctoral research stays, one of them was at the Department of Chemical Engineering of the University of Coimbra (Portugal) for 6 month and the other was at the Department of Analytical Chemistry, Superior Polytechnic School of the University of Seville for 1 month. The objective of her research in Portugal was to apply several statistical methodologies (hypothesis tests) to the analytical results, regarding the presence of pollutants in the environmental samples. On the other hand, her work in Seville consisted on development and validation of analytical methods to determine endocrine disrupting chemicals in human hair samples. In 2016, she got a postdoctoral contract under the program of “Improvement of Doctors abroad of the University of Granada”. During two years she has been working at the Free University of Brussels, Belgium, under the supervision of Professor Jean-Michel Kauffmann. In this time, she also participates actively in the Doctoral School of Faculty of pharmacy of Free University of Brussels (ULB) as senior researcher, both in 2016-2017 academic year and in 2017-2018. She also is accredited by ANECA as profesor “Contratado Doctor”, “Ayudante Doctor” and private University. Currently, she is working at the Department of Analytical Chemistry of the University of Cordoba in collaboration with Prof. Lourdes Arce.
