"I am convinced that the carbon nanotube fibre will revolutionize the composite materials field".
Juan José Vilatela has a BSc in Engineering Physics (Hons) from Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico, and a PhD from Cambridge University, obtained in 2009. Before joining IMDEA Materials Institute he worked as a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy at Cambridge University. His research focused mainly on the development of a new high-performance fibre made of carbon nanotubes. The fibre spinning process is currently under industrial scale-up; Dr. Vilatela being an active consultant in this development.
