Rocío Muñoz receives 2014 Zwick Science Award

Rocío Muñoz, alumni of IMDEA Materials Institute, has received the 3rd prize in the 2014 Zwick Science Award for her paper entitled “Analysis of crystallographic slip and grain boundary sliding in a Ti–45Al–2Nb–2Mn (at%)–0.8 vol%TiB2 alloy by high temperature in situ mechanical testing”.

Zwick is today the world leader in the static materials testing market and organices an academic event where young scientists are awarded for contributions in the field of advanced mechanical testing of Materials. 2014 Zwick Science Award took place past 2nd of June 2015 at ETH Zurich.
