Marite Cardenas

I am an enthusiastic, result focused and experienced physical chemist with strong background on colloid and surface chemistry of biological systems. Main research interests cover relations between structure/function and composition of biological interfaces and biological colloids including diverse applications for industry.

    Awards The AkzoNobel Research Prize in Surface and Colloidal Science, 2011. The Unesco/L’Oreal Prize for Women in Science, Denmark 2012.

    Teaching experience I have plenty experience in teaching both theory and laboratories. At U.C.P.H. I have been course responsible of two 7.5 points bachelor compulsory course (Bionano 1 and 2) that deal with physical chemistry in life sciences (covering mainly thermodynamics, intermolecular forces, molecular transport, colligative properties and biochemistry). I also teach courses with respect to structural tools to study nanomaterials including atomic force microscopy, electron microscopy, neutron and x-ray scattering and ellipsometry. At the moment I act as main supervisor of two PhD students and I co-supervise 3 other PhD students at the Niels Bohr Institute, Department of Food Chemistry and the Pharmaceutical Faculty. I have undertaken a 1 year long pedagogic course and I was categorized as a natural born teacher.

    Industrial Collaborations Current projects together with Christian Hansen and Dyrup (PGG Coatings). Previous projects with Novozymes, Skånemejeriet, Amgros I/S and Sinclair Pharma.
