Welcome from the Chair

Dear Colleagues,

MDPI is planning to hold a workshop related to our topic series ‘Scientific Advances in STEM: From Professor to Students’. The aim of this workshop is to provide a platform for scholars in the related field to discuss and contribute to the advancement of the science and engineering fields.

The University generates and transmits knowledge to serve society. Social demands continuously evolve, mainly as a consequence of cultural, scientific, and technological development. Researchers must contextualize the subjects they investigate to their application to the local industry and community organizations, frequently using a multidisciplinary point of view, to enhance progress in a wide variety of fields (aeronautics, automotive, biomedical, electrical and renewable energy, communications, environmental, electronic components, etc.).

This workshop will bring together scholars and researchers in the Science and Engineering fields to discuss the framework for integrating interdisciplinary research, drawing together experimental and theoretical contributions in a wide variety of fields.

We will record the workshop, with the agreement of the lecturers, and deposit it in our online database. We will continue to build this database by adding summaries of topics across the field of STEM. We hope that this workshop is of interest to you, and we welcome you to join us.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you at the Scientific Advances in STEM topic webinar. Please find below an up-to-date outline of presenters.

Speakers' Profiles

Dr. Ana M. Beltrán

Ana M. Beltrán has a PhD in Material Science and is currently an associate professor of Material Science at the University of Seville (Spain). Her scientific interests include the characterization of different materials, both at a macroscale (concerning the mechanical properties of biomaterials) and at a nanoscale through transmission electron microscopy (structural and compositional analysis of bio-nanostructures, semiconductor, catalysts), to understand their behaviour.

She has been the guest editor of Special Issues for the journal, Metals, and she also contributed to MDPI’s first multidisciplinary topic involving the journals Metals, Polymers, Foods, Sustainability and Sensors, from which a book was published. She is currently involved in the running of a second multidisciplinary topic entitled “Scientific Advances in STEM: Synergies to Achieve Success”.

Dr. Frank Clemens

Dr. Frank Clemens is a Group Leader (Smart Ceramic Processing) at the Laboratory for High Performance Ceramics at Empa, Swiss Federal Laboratories for Material Science and Technology, Switzerland. His scientific and applied research belongs to the thermoplastic processing of powder-based sensors, actuators and structural materials. His group focuses on national and international projects in this field and he works with physics, chemists, material scientists and engineers to investigate activation energies on different processing steps. In addition, he has also developed new strategies for the processing of functional ceramics and soft sensor materials and structures. Since 2003 he has been a lecturer at ETH Zurich (CH), and between 2010 and 2021, he was a lecturer at ZHAW (CH). He has more than 150 peer-reviewed articles and patents.

Prof. Dr. Carlos Bengoechea

Carlos Bengoechea is an associate teacher in the Universidad de Sevilla, Spain, where he teaches a range of courses, including Chemical Engineering and Polymeric Materials. He has a wide range of experience in the development of applications (e.g., plastics, emulsions) that add value to by-products of the industry (e.g., soy protein, porcine plasma). Currently, he is supervising an R&D project on green superabsorbent materials for personal care applications using different by-products.

Registration

This is a FREE webinar. The number of participants to the live session is limited but the recording will be made available on Sciforum shortly afterwards. Registrations with academic institutional email addresses will be prioritized.
