Dr. Jon M. Molina-Aldareguia (IMDEA Materials)

Dr. Jon M. Molina-Aldareguia graduated in Materials Engineering at University of Navarra in 1998 and got his Ph.D. at Cambridge University in 2002. Before joining IMDEA Materials as Researcher in 2008, he was a tenured researcher at CEIT and Associated Professor of Materials Science at the University of Navarra. He currently leads the research group of Nanomechanics and Micromechanics of Advanced Materials. Dr. Molina has held post-doctoral positions at the Department of Physics, University of Linköping, and was Visiting Scientist at Intel Corporation during 2004. While at CEIT, he was the coordinator of the European Project INTERFACE, funded by the European Union through the 6th Framework Programme, which comprises 11 European institutions, with the objetive of interface optimization in carbon nanofibre reainforced Cu matrix composites for thermal management applications. Dr. Molina has published more than twenty papers in international journals.
