Samuel Eduardo Salud Ordon, Universidad del Istmo

Relationship Between Hydrogen Diffusivity And Microhardness In A Tempered Experimental V-Mo Steel

I was born in a small town in the Istmo de Tehuantepec region in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. Since I was little I have always been curious to learn, I like to read and know about many topics, curiosity has been one of my virtues until now. All my student life has been developed in public schools in the cities near my town, throughout this journey I have met valuable people who have taught me a lot. In the last stage of my professional training I met the one who is now my thesis advisor, Dr. Edgar López Martínez, from the beginning I was curious about his line of research, this led me to investigate more about the subject and in the end decide to develop a project with him. Thanks to the formation of the UNISTMO SMMater student chapter within my university, I had the opportunity to be awarded a scholarship by the Mexican Society of Materials (Sociedad Mexicana de Materiales) as a student monitor to participate in the XXX International Material Research Congress in Cancun, Mexico where I applied for the Best Student Poster Award obtaining third place in the competition. This award has been a great motivation to continue pursuing my goals.

Cindy Viridiana Peto Gutierrez, UNAM

Fabrication Of Microelectrodes With Large Electrochemically Active Surface Area Based On Shrink Polymer Film And Rapid Low-Cost Prototyping Techniques

I am Cindy Viridiana Peto-Gutiérrez, born in a small city at the Gulf of Mexico coast. My first life-changing scientific experience was representing Mexico at the International Chemistry Olympiad 2011, and ever since I’ve wanted to find ways for scientific reasoning and knowledge to feel accessible to those around me. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Physics and a MSc in Materials Science and Engineering from Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM, México). I am currently a PhD candidate at the same graduate programme and a subject teacher at the Faculty of Sciences. My research focuses on the development of miniaturized, highly sensitive electrochemical sensors via low-cost benchtop fabrication techniques and its integration into microfluidic devices. The final goal is to monitor electroactive soluble analytes released by cultured endothelial cells excited with different shear stresses. Broadly, I’m interested in interdisciplinary research geared towards solving biomedical problems.

2019 Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship – open for nominations

2019 Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship – open for nominations

Established in 2010, this lectureship honours early-career scientists who have made a significant contribution to the field of materials chemistry.

The Lectureship recipient receives £1000 to cover travel and accommodation costs to attend and present at a leading international meeting. The recipient is also invited to contribute an article to one of the Journal of Materials Chemistry journals and to receive a complimentary cover for the issue in which the article appears.

Last year’s winner of the 2018 Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship was Professor Shaojun Guo from Peking University, China and he will be giving his lectureship research talk at the RSC’s flagship materials chemistry 14 conference in Birmingham, UK.

To be eligible for the Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship, the candidate must:

  • Have completed their PhD.
  • Be actively pursuing an independent research career within materials chemistry.
  • Be at an early stage of their independent career (typically this will be within 10 years of completing their PhD, but appropriate consideration will be given to those who have taken a career break or followed a different study path).
  • Have made significant contributions to the field of materials chemistry.

Self-nomination is permitted, and all new nominations from 2018 will automatically be reconsidered this year.

At the Royal Society of Chemistry we believe we have a responsibility to promote inclusivity and accessibility in order to improve diversity. Where possible, we encourage each nominator to nominate an equal number of men and women.

You are welcome to circulate this information widely and please do ask for nominations from your colleagues and nominate researchers yourself.

To nominate a candidate, email the Journal of Materials Chemistry Editorial Office (materials-rsc@rsc.org) by the 18th of July 2019 with:

  • A brief C.V. of the candidate (no longer than two pages), including the candidate name, year and University of PhD, website link to research profile, current University and job title
  • A letter supporting the nomination (also no longer than two pages)

The Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B & C Editors-in-Chief will select and announce the Lectureship winner, in autumn 2019.

Selection is not based simply on quantitative measures. Consideration is given to all information provided in the letter of recommendation and candidate C.V., including research achievements and originality, contributions to the materials chemistry community, innovation, collaborations and teamwork, and publication history.

Thank you for helping Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B & C and the Royal Society of Chemistry to support early-career researchers. We sincerely look forward to receiving your nominations.
