Julio C. Chacón Torres, Ph.D.
Julio Chacon obtained his B.Sc. in Mechatronics Engineering at Tecnologico de Monterrey, Mexico in 2008. He enrolled the graduated program of Applied Sciences at the Institute of Science and Technology of San Luis Potosi in Mexico and further moved to Vienna in 2010 where he conducted his PhD within a French-Austrian Cooperation program. During his PhD he was funded by the Austrian Science Foundation (FWF) and the OEAD Amadeus Program. He graduated in November 2013 with a thesis entitled: “Theory and Spectroscopy on functionalized graphene and GICs”.
In May 2014 he was awarded a DRS Posdoctoral Fellowship at Freie Universität Berlin, Germany, and spent two years and a half in Berlin working on a project related to in-situ graphene and carbon nanotubes doping and characterization under inert and high-vacuum conditions.
Recently (in September 2016) Julio joined Yachay Tech as an Assistant Professor where he was also the heard of Nanotechnology in the School of Physical Sciences and Nanotechnology until 2019. Currently, Julio works as professor of Nanotechnology at Yachay Tech University.
Julio has currently a set of (14) Peer review publications: (1) Nature Comm. (1) JACS (1) Appl. Phys. Lett. (1) ACS Nano (1) Carbon (1) Angew. Chem. (1) Phys. Rev. B (1) Scientific reports (6) Phys. Status Solidi B with 325 citations and h-index: 9 (Google scholar)
