Životopis

Ivana Murković Steinberg is Full Professor of Chemistry at the Faculty of Chemical Engineering & Technology,  University of Zagreb, Croatia.  She graduated with a B.Eng. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Zagreb, and has a Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Graz,  Austria, for research on optical chemical sensors for the determination of ions. Her research involves development of functional hybrid (nano)materials (silica sol-gel thin films, fluorescent (nano)materials) and design of optical sensing schemes for integrated analytical chemical systems. Her current work is focussed on building interfaces and sensing architectures for integration with wireless and wearable (bio)chemical sensors, particularly for non-invasive monitoring of biomarkers in healthcare and sport physiology (wound and sweat monitoring).  She teaches General Chemistry at undergraduate level, Integrated Chemical Systems, Technology Management and Innovation at Masters level, and Chemical Sensors and Biosensors in the Faculty’s doctoral studies programme.
