She has been working in our group for the last six weeks working in the study of the 1,2-bis(4-methylbenzoylvinylamino)ethane and Ni (II) 1,3-bis(4-methylbenzoylvinylamino)propane Ni(II) complexes coordinated to pyridine, 4-dimethylaminopyridine, 4-metoxypyridine, N-methyloimidazole, and thiazole ligands. She has been financed by an HPC-Europa3 fellowship and during her stay in our group she has been supervised by Dr. Olga A. Stasyuk and Dr. Miquel Solà. We are very happy to have had her in our group!
