About

Six Sigma Green Belt Project Leader with strong expertise in Polymer Science & Engineering, Data Modeling, and Product & Application Development. I presently hold a position as Associate Research Scientist at The DOW Chemical Company, within the Performance Plastics division (Lake Jackson, Texas, USA). I have co-authored 35 publications which have been published in international peer review journals (indexed in the SCI). Some of my research fields include: [1] Morphology, nucleation and crystallization behavior of semi-crystalline materials and semi-crystalline components within multiphasic materials (polymer blends, block copolymers and nanocomposites); [2] Structure/Properties/Processing relationship of polymers,specially semi-crystalline polymers (i.e. polyolefins). Supporting current and emerging technologies and products as Subject-Matter Expert (SME) on Material and Polymer Science.
