Adriana was born and raised in Valladolid, Spain where she studied chemistry and the University of Valladolid (Uva). She obtained her bachelor’s degree in 2016. She then went on to pursue her master’s degree in chemical synthesis and industry through the collaboration of UVa, University of Basque Country and Public University of Navarra and graduated in 2017. Her PhD thesis presented in March 2023 was about the synthesis and development of molecular tweezers and molecular machines for fullerene recognition. In May 2023, she joined the Delius group at Ulm University. She used to be a youth coach of rhythmic gymnastics, which she still follows in her free time, when she is not lifting weights in the gym.

Ph.D. Thesis
