Prof. Daehn has degrees in Materials Science and Engineering form Northwestern University (BS) and Stanford University (MS/PhD). He has been engaged in multiple industry and educational outreach activities and is currently Chair of the ASM Materials Education Foundation.
I am a senior staff scientist at the Institute of Materials Science of Aragón, within the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), and I am affiliated to the Department of Condensed Matter Physics at the University of Zaragoza.
I hold a Laurea (Bachelor’s degree) from the University of Camerino (1996) and a joint PhD degree awarded by the Universities of Leiden and Zaragoza (2001). I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Leiden (2001–2004) and the CNR Institute of Nanoscience in Modena (2004–2009), before joining the Institute of Materials Science of Aragón as a "Ramón y Cajal" CSIC Fellow. I tenured as a CSIC scientist in 2010, becoming senior scientist in 2017.
I am an experimental physicist with a keen interest in magnetocaloric and electrocaloric materials and in the development of advanced instrumentation.
Dr. António Pereira Gonçalves is a Coordinator Researcher of the Department of Engineering and Nuclear Sciences of Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Lisbon University.
