Maurin studied Chemistry and obtained her B.Sc. at the Universidad de Antioquia (Colombia) as well as her Doctorate in Chemical Science (Summa Cum Laude). During her B.Sc. studies, she synthesized materials based on tungsten and molybdenum for hydrocarbon transformation. The focus of her doctoral studies was the effect of biofuels on the soot physicochemical characteristics produced in different combustion systems. She did an internship, during her doctoral studies, in Prof. Andrea D'Anna's group at Universitá Federico II di Napoli. She was selected by the Alexander von Humboldt for one of the prestigious Humboldt Research Postdoctoral Fellowships for early-career researchers. She developed her research at Bielefeld University in the Department of Chemistry, working under the advisement of Professor Katharina Kohse-Höinghaus. She joined the CoMo group in 2018 to investigate the formation of soot and oxides nanoparticles in flames.
