Dr Magdalena Pascual Borràs holds a PhD in computational chemistry from the Universitat Rovira i Virgili in Tarragona in Catalonia, where she looked at the computational modelling of polyoxometalates. She is currently doing a postdoc with Andy Ohlin, where her focus is on the computational and experimental resolution of the reactivity of discrete metal oxides.

Magda moved to the group of John Errington in September 2019.
