Thanks to the Santander International Exchange Bursary I could spend 3 weeks in Barcelona under the supervision of Prof. Ignacio Pagonabarraga at the Universitat de Barcelona.

My trip begun on the Monday 25th of January and ended on the 12th of February. During this time I was able to discuss with Prof. Pagonabarraga many interesting physical aspects to be included in my PhD. After a first week in which we mostly reviewed the work that I had done and we attempted to improve our understanding of the model and simulations of systems of nanoparticles and diblock copolymer, we were able to move forward to consider new physical properties to be studied. It was particularly interesting to possibility to make the colloids to be active brownian particles.

This visit to Barcelona also allowed me to meet other PhD students working under Prof. Pagonabarraga’s supervision. During my last week…
