Prof. Rodrigo Moreno obtained the PhD degree in Chemistry by Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 1988. He has developed all his scientific activity in the Institute of Ceramics & Glass (CSIC, Spain), where he became Tenured Scientist in 1990, Research Scientist in 1999, and Research Professor in 2004. He is the leader of the Synthesis and Colloidal Processing Group at ICV from 2005.
He is co-author of more than 380 journal articles (>280 indexed in ISI), 9 patents, several book chapters, and one book and has more than 400 contributions in scientific conferences, with more than 70 invited lectures and belonging to the organization committees of more than 50 conferences. His works have received more than 4000 citations with an h-index of 31.
Prof. Moreno is member of the Spanish Ceramic Society, Vice-president of the Spanish Society of Materials (SOCIEMAT), member of the American Ceramic Society, and Fellow of the European Ceramic Society. He was Associate editor Journal of the American Ceramic Society (2009-2011), and is now editor of the Journal of the European Ceramic Society, editor of the journal Material-ES edited by SOCIEMAT, and member of the Advisory Board of Boletín de la Sociedad Española de Cerámica y Vidrio.
Professor Moreno’s interest lies on the synthesis of ceramic powders by chemical routes, the colloidal stability and rheology of ceramic suspensions and their further shape forming using colloidal techniques to produce bulk ceramics (by slip casting, pressure casting, gel casting, low pressure injection moulding, freeze casting), and substrates and coatings (by tape casting, dip coating and electrophoretic deposition). He also works in the design of tailored microstructures and textured materials including laminates and functionally graded materials and materials with hierarchical and directional porosity. He is also involved in the processing of ceramic composites with carbon nanodispersoids (nanotubes, graphenes, etc).
