Cintia Casado is Assistant Professor of Environmental Science at Rey Juan Carlos University. She has studied Chemical Engineering and a Master in Technology and Energetic Resources.  She worked as a pre-doctoral student at IMDEA Nanoscience (Institute of Advanced Studies, Madrid) involved in the European project Multifunctional Nanotechnology for Selective Detection and Treatment of Cancer.  She moves to URJC in 2012, where she got a PhD grant. She defended her PhD Thesis at URJC in April, 2017, focused in the CFD modeling of photocatalytic reactors. In 2015, she did 3-months research stay at MIT, where she worked with the open source CFD tool OpenFoam. In 2016, she did a 3-months research stay at Cambridge University, focused on the simulation of the nucleation and growth processes that occurs in silver nanoparticles formation in microreactor systems.


From March 2020, she is doing a 6 months post-doctoral stay at Cambridge University. Her work is based on applying a computational fluid dynamics coupled with population balance for nanoparticles.
