Yesterday it was a great opportunity to present part of my research to alumni living in the city of Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
I am very excited about the support I have received from the Dutch National Research Agenda (NWA), MESA+ Institute, and the Techmed Centre, to organize an event entitled The Future Under Our Skin, next April 18th at the Design Lab, University of Twente. More details about the program will follow.
This Thursday I will be talking about Hydrogen and some ideas for its future utilization as part of a mini-symposium organized by KIVI. The program can be found here.
Last November 7th, 2018, I had the great privilege to open the First Congress on Nanobioengineering, as part of the inauguration of the Centro de Investigación en Biotecnología y Nanotoxicología (CIBYN), from the Faculty of Chemistry of the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo Leon (UANL), Monterrey, Mexico.
Our work on Gas bubble evolution on microstructured silicon substrates, is now published in Energy and Environmental Science. The result of a fruitful collaboration with colleagues from UC3M and Physics of Fluids group, has detailed the formation, growth and detachment of gas bubbles on electrodes of relevance to many gas-producing processes in industry.
On October 2nd, I had the privilege to give an invited talk at EmTech Europe 2018. In a panel discussion on Rewriting Life: Reengineering Our Bodies, I presented ongoing work of my group at the University of Twente, on needle-free injections. The title of my talk was: Why do we still use needles for medical treatments?
Today I had the great privilege to give an invited keynote presentation and open the Workshop on Cavitation Exploitation organized by Matevž Dular In the framework of his ERC Consolidator grant, a selected group of specialists converged in Ljubljana, Slovenia, to talk about … bubbles.
In a short interview, I was able to share some of my dreams and past activities at the University of Twente. You can read the short text here.
Guerrilla Science: Survival Strategies of a Cuban Physicist by Ernesto Altshuler My rating: 5 of 5 stars This book is a beautiful story about science, humor and in some instances, sadness. The author uses several anecdotes in his story that at the same time teaches us something about his top-notch scientific research. For most people, […]
