Rebeca Martínez Vázquez (female) received her Degree and PhD in Physics from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Spain) in 2000 and 2005 respectively. Between 2004 and 2012 she was  a contract researcher at IFN-CNR in Milan and in 2012 she became a staff researcher. She is also a contract-teaching assistant at the Politecnico di Milano.

Presently her research interest is focused in the modification of transparent materials by femtosecond laser irradiation. Her research activity includes the development and characterization of microfluidic lab-on-a-chip devices for strong laser fields applications and biomedical applications. She is also interested in the development and fabrication, by direct laser writing, of 3D micro-size structures for biological studies.

Presently she is the IFN-Unit Coordinator of the FETOPEN H2020 project “X-PIC” (eXtreme ultraviolet to soft-X-ray Photonic Integrated Circuits) and of the PON Project “TITAN” (Nanotecnologie per l’immunoterapia dei tumori). She is also collaborating, as a senior researcher, in the FETOPEN H2020 Project “IN2SIGHT” (An in vivo bioengineered chip as a smart intravital multiphoton imaging window for new validation protocols of biomaterials ).

She is co-author of four book chapters, and more than 50 scientific articles in international  journals.
