In this talk, Catalina will share experiences along her career path in Germany. In particular she would like to share how the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB), one of the 18 Helmholtz Centers across Germany, provided her chances to develop professionally both in research and scientific management in local, national and international contexts.

Dr. Catalina E. Jiménez was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she also studied material sciences. She did her PhD (2009) and postdoc in Germany at TU Berlin. She is a researcher at the spin-off company of “HZB MetalFoam” and beamline scientist at the synchrotron facility BESSY II. In 2015, she joined the HZB Director’s Office to implement their internationalization strategy. Since 2018, she’s been back in research at the department “Interface Design” and the “Energy Materials In-situ Laboratory (EMIL)” to investigate energy conversion processes, new materials and devices using in-situ/operando synchrotron techniques. She is also scientific coordinator of the international “HZB Photon School”, elected member of the HZB Scientific Technical Council and Steering Board Member of the Helmholtz Imaging Platform.
