Interview with Juan José Vilatela, Head Researcher of the Multifunctional Nanocomposites group of IMDEA Materials

"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.
