MIT Innovator under 35 LATAM and VISIONARY of the YEAR

Dr. Jaime Andrés Pérez Taborda, winner in the “Visionary” category of the Universidad de los Andes, for his project of water monitoring technologies for rural communities powered by thermoelectric nanogenerators. In addition, Dr. Perez-Taborda was selected visionary of the year.

The MIT Technology Review recognizes the talent of entrepreneurs from different countries that are developing new technologies to help solve the problems that affect the world.


About me:

Dr. Pérez-Taborda received the Engineering Physics degree (Hons.) from the Technological University of Pereira, Colombia, in 2011, and the master\’s degree in synchrotron radiation and particle accelerators from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona in 2013, as well as his Ph.D (Cum laude) from the Institute of Microelectronics of Madrid, Complutense University of Madrid, and Higher Council of Scientific Research CSIC, Spain. He has been the recipient of the Santander Iberoamérica Young Professors and Researchers Award (2013 and 2015), MIT Technology Review 35 Innovators Under 35 (TR35), and Latin America Visionary of the Year in 2019. Since Sep 2021, he has been an assistant professor at the National University of Colombia.

The disconnection between artificial intelligence engineering research and sustainable development

Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to contribute to solving some of the most pressing societal issues of our time, but to what extent are engineers reflecting on the uses of their technologies for sustainable development, and who is producing the engineering knowledge behind AI? https://www.leidenmadtrics.nl/articles/the-disconnection-between-artificial-intelligence-engineering-research-and-sustainable-development

Our most recent paper: Valence State Tuning of Gold Nanoparticles in the Dewetting Process: An X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy Study

Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) are commonly synthesized using the citrate reduction method, reducing Au3+ into Au1+ ions and facilitating the disproportionation of aurous species to Au atoms (Au0). This method results on citrate-capped AuNPs with valence single states Au0. Here, we report a methodology that allows obtaining AuNPs by the dewetting process with three different valence states (Au3+,Sigue leyendo «Our most recent paper: Valence State Tuning of Gold Nanoparticles in the Dewetting Process: An X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy Study»

New REVIEW: Tug-of-War in the Selection of Materials for Battery Technologies

We are very excited to share that our review Tug-of-War in the Selection of Materials for Battery Technologies has just been published MDPI https://mdpi.com/1792914 #mdpibatteries. #Batteries are the heart and the bottleneck of portable electronic systems. This review studies material used in the four battery components from the perspective and the impact of seven ions (Li+, Na+, K+,Sigue leyendo «New REVIEW: Tug-of-War in the Selection of Materials for Battery Technologies»
