About

Dedicated and enthusiastic researcher in the field of Materials Science and Engineering. Education, experience, and skills to develop technology using metallic and ceramic materials at the nano- or macro-scale. Experience and capacity for research and development focused on materials for energy applications, which includes the analysis of the structure, properties, processing, and performance. Knowledge and particular interest in the development of materials resistant to corrosion and wear. Research interest oriented towards the development of materials and manufacturing techniques based on the additive manufacturing concept. Substantial experience in the formulation and management of R&D projects with funding from public and private institutions. Focused on meeting objectives, supported by excellent interpersonal skills and ability to work with others (team environment) and individually. High expectations in the development of technology aimed at the improvement or generation of new business.
