Biography
Biography: 

Eduardo joined Imperial College in October 2009. He received his MsC from the Universidad de Cantabria (Spain) and his PhD from the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid in 1992. His PhD project was carried out at the Instituto de Cerámica y Vidrio – CSIC. There he worked in the development of ceramic superconducting thick films. In 1992 he joined Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (USA) with a Fulbright fellowship and remained there as a staff scientist until 2009. In Berkeley he worked in the fields of high temperature capillarity, joining, composites and biomaterials.

His research interests include the development of new processing techniques for the fabrication of ceramic-based composites, in particular hierarchical composites with bioinspired architectures, the study of high temperature interfacial phenomena such as spreading, and the development of new materials to support bone tissue engineering.

At Imperial College, he forms part of the Centre for Advanced Structural Ceramics (CASC)
