She is affiliated to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry of the University of Bern (Switzerland) and to the Swiss Light Source, Paul Scherrer Institute in Villigen (Switzerland) and is currently finalizing her PhD. Her article about the dynamic behavior of a flexible and porous metal-organic framework was highly rated by all six members of the selection committee. They were impressed by the convincing and original results, which open the way to even more exciting possibilities in designing metal-organic frameworks. Ms. Lanza’s high competence and confidence in X-ray analysis and her scientific leadership were emphasized by the jurors, all leading experts in their fields.
