Nancy Ornelas Soto, Ph.D.

Research Areas:

  • Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy of biological materials
  • Nanostructured materials for environment applications.
  • Development of nanophotonic sensors

Nancy Ornelas Soto received the B.S. degree in Chemistry and the PhD degree in Chemical Sciences both from Universidad de Guanajuato, in 2002 and 2008, respectively. From 2011 to 2012, she was visiting researcher in the research group of Applied Biospectroscopy of the Nofima Mat in Norway.

In 2013, Nancy Ornelas joined the Water Center for Latin America and Caribbean at Tecnológico de Monterrey, where he was appointed Professor and Researcher. Moreover, she is leader of the research group in Environmental Nanotechnology. She is member of the Mexican Research National System since 2010. Her research activities include (1) advanced spectroscopic characterization methods such as SERS, polarized raman spectroscopy and imaging spectroscopy; (2) synthesis of nanostructured photocatalysts/biocatalysts and their application in the transformation of persistent organic pollutants; and (3) development of surface plasmon resonance-based sensors for detection of emerging pollutants in the environment and biological materials. She has authored about 30 scientific JCR papers on environmental assessment and spectroscopy characterization in the last 5 years.
