Graphenea strengthens research team
Graphenea announces the hiring of Dr. Amaya Ortega, an expert in nanomaterials, nanocomposites, and functionalization, as Scientific Researcher. Dr. Ortega will strengthen Graphenea’s research team, which prides itself in staying at the cutting edge of graphene science and technology.
Dr. Amaya Ortega obtained her PhD in polymer nanocomposites from Manchester Metropolitan University (UK) in 2005. After completing her PhD she joined AIMPLAS (Plastic Research Institute, Spain) where she worked as a senior researcher in the field nanomaterials, polymer nanocomposites and polymer functionalization for more than 10 years. She has wide experience as project manager for national and EU projects. At Graphenea, where she has been engaged since November 2015, she works as part of the established team to develop new graphene related materials.

Graphenea, a leading company in graphene production and a venture backed by Repsol and CDTI, was established in 2010, and has since grown to be one of the world's largest providers of graphene. The company is headquartered at the nanotechnology cluster CIC nanoGune in San Sebastian, Spain and Boston. Graphenea employs 15 people and exports graphene materials to more than 400 customers in 55 countries. The company has focused on constant improvement of graphene quality, becoming a supplier customers can rely on. Graphenea employs a team of skilled laboratory staff who have brought graphene film production techniques to a new level, offering the same high quality films on any substrate. Graphenea produces CVD graphene wafers up to 4 inches and graphene oxide in volumes up to 5 liters per package. Graphenea partners with large multinationals to develop custom graphene materials for their applications. Its research agility and ability to keep pace with the progress of graphene science and technology has allowed Graphenea to become the largest graphene supplier in the Graphene Flagship, a ten year project of the European Commission worth a billion euros. The company keeps a close relation with the world's leading scientists, regularly publishing scientific articles of the highest level.
