Our group aims to explore the processing-structure-property relationships in bulk metals, with special emphasis on the role of texture and grain boundaries at all length scales. Our interdisciplinary team is formed by physicists, chemists, and engineers (materials, mechanical and aeronautical). We carry out fundamental research and also work in close collaboration with companies in the transport, aerospace, energy and biomedical sectors.

We are always looking for good people that are highly motivated to carry out research. If you have an interest in joining us, please send your CV to teresa.perez.prado@imdea.org. Formal openings will be published periodically on our News section.
