María Echeverría Igartua is a Basque Researcher with a B. Eng. Industrial Engineering in Industrial Chemistry. She received on 2015 her MSc. in Advanced Material Engineering at Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería de Bilbao, Mining and Metallurgical Engineering Department, Universidad del País Vasco-Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea. 

Briefly, she has over 5 years of research experience consisting of: 6 months as an undergraduate student of Chemical Engineering, 4 years as a Junior Lab Technician at the Soft Matter Nanotechnology Lab at CIC biomaGUNE, and approximately 1 year at CIC energiGUNE. Her research encompasses the fabrication and surface engineering of nanomaterials as drug delivery carriers and the study of their intracellular localization.

Previously, she was involved in the development of several projects, such as "QualityNano" from the European Commission (Project reference: 262163), where she contributed by characterizing different nanoparticles by DLS, TEM and SEM. She was also actively participating in the Esbrananotox project, which involved the study of the nanotoxicity and biodistribution of magnetic nanoparticles for their application in biomedicine. In Esbrananotox, she was synthesizing magnetic nanoparticles following different methodologies (co-precipitation, hydrothermal synthesis, etc.), and engineering the surface using biocompatible molecules for in vivo administration. She was also a part of the Nanosolutions Project. Here, her work focused on developing different fluorescence and radio labeling methods for tagging Metal Oxide NPs and Multiwall Carbon Nanotubes to study their in vitro and in vivo behavior.

Currently, she works at CIC energiGUNE as a Lab Technician for the Electron Microscopy Platform and the Surface Analysis Unit. Here, her work is focused on giving support to the Research Centre in the above mentioned Platforms. She has developed expertise in Advanced Electron Microscopy methodologies such as High Vacuum, Low Vacuum and Environmental measurements for the characterization of Energy Storage Systems combine with Spectrometric techniques such as Raman and FT-IR among others.
