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.
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.
Dr. Perez-Taborda participated as keynote speaker at the I International Congress of Academic Departments Revolution 4.0 and Ecological Crisis.
