Esther Coz Diego

A young researcher who obtained her PhD in Materials Science and Engineering at Madrid's King Charles III University in January 2009, specialising in the structural characterisation of atmospheric aerosols. She undertook a postdoctoral stay in the Department of Meteorology at the University of Stockholm (Sweden) financed by the International Meteorological Institute (IMI). She has more than 3 years training abroad in world-leading research groups in this field. She is currently working as a researcher in the Air Pollution Characterisation Group at the Energy, Environment and Technology Research Centre (CIEMAT), a public research body currently attached to the Ministry of the Economy and Competitiveness.

As a result of her research, she has published 8 works as the lead author in some of the most important scientific journals in the field of the atmosphere and aerosols, as well as her recent collaboration in a paper on cloud formation processes at the North Pole, in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), the journal that ranks third in terms of impact in science rankings after Nature and Science. She has also taken part in international meetings and congresses with more than 30 presentations of scientific papers.

The prizes she has received are proof of the excellence of her work from the start of her research career: the Juan Luis Plantalamor prize for the most innovative Final Degree Project, from the ETSI Mining School at the Polytechnic University of Madrid in 2002, and the prize for her doctoral thesis from the Spanish Association for Aerosol Science and Engineering, in 2009.
