Marta Sales-Pardo (Barcelona, 1976) graduated in Physics at Universitat de Barcelona in 1998, and obtained a PhD in Physics from Universitat de Barcelona in 2002. She then moved to Northwestern University, where she first worked as a postdoctoral fellow and, later, as a Fulbright Scholar. In 2008, she became a Research Assistant Professor at the Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Science Institute with joint appointments in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering and the Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems. In 2009, she accepted her current posistion as an Associate Professor in the Departament d'Engineyria Química at Universitat Rovira i Virgili.
