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 440 journal articles (>330 indexed in ISI), 9 patents, several book chapters, and two books and has more than 450 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 10,000 citations in Google Scholar with an h-index of 48 and an i10 of 257.
Prof. Moreno is member of the Spanish Ceramic Society, Vice-president of the Spanish Society of Materials (SOCIEMAT), member of the American Ceramic Society, Fellow of the European Ceramic Society, Socio de Honor of SOCIEMAT and Academician of the World Academy of Ceramics. He is Senior editor of the Journal of the European Ceramic Society, board member of the European Journal of Materials, board member of Materials, and editor of the journal Material-ES edited by SOCIEMAT. He received the JECS Trust Award in 2017 and the Best Scientific Career in Materials Science Award of SOCIEMAT in 2022.
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, graphene, etc.).
