Lorena Montesino Redondo
Bio: I obtained my BSc degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Technical University of Madrid in 2019. Then, I did an MSc in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Zaragoza, specialising in biomechanics and advanced biomaterials. To complete these studies, I developed my master’s thesis on digital printing of responsive materials based on liquid crystal elastomers (LCEs) for fabricating biomedical devices for cell cultures. I worked on this project in the AML group, where I later started my PhD in January 2021. My research work is now focused on developing light-sensitive materials capable of applying mechanical stimuli that emulate biomimetic environments. Besides, these materials could be incorporated into other existing cell culture technologies, such as bioreactors, or organ-on-chip devices.
Hobbies: I like to go for a run with friends, learn new languages and listen to indie music.
Research Interests: liquid crystal elastomers, soft robotics, organ-on-chip
