Anastasiia Mikhalchan

Postdoctoral researcher and former MSCA fellow at the IMDEA Materials Institute

«We developed a method to enhance mutual alignment and stress-transfer in multiyarn CNT fabrics, which is a critical step for scaling up the CNT fabrics manufacturing process and further industrial implementation.»

Thomas Bieler

«Being curious about how the world works (from ‘why did this happen?’, to ‘why am I here?’) provides a motivation for asking critical questions, and provides the basis for successful research thrusts»

Carl Boehlert

Professor at Michigan State University and former Visiting Professor at the IMDEA Materials Institute

«Material scientists are always trying to push the envelop to develop that one material with that one microstructure that can be used for a variety of applications, and along the way materials development occurs and we find certain materials and microstructures that can be used for certain applications»

Teresa Pérez Prado

Deputy Director of the IMDEA Materials Institute

«IMDEA Materials has provided a unique opportunity both to mature as a scientist as well as to contribute to the creation and growth of a research institute in Spain»

Mauricio Terrones

Professor at Penn State University and former Visiting Professor at the IMDEA Materials Institute

«I strongly believe that it is important that everybody do something they like and motivate on a daily basis»

Damien Tourret
