Student Speech Contest award of the Spanish Ceramic Society to Esther Molero Romero for her contribution about processing of foams reinforced with a MAX phase

Esther Molero Romero has been selected as the First Prize in the 2014 Student Speech Contest at LIV Congreso de la Sociedad Española de Cerámica y Vidrio (Badajoz, November-2014) with her work “In-situ ceramic reinforcement (Ti3SiC2) of Ti foams by combining the use of pre-ceramic polymers and colloidal processing techniques”. The work has subsequently been submitted in the International Conference of the European Ceramic Society (ECERS) held in Toledo 21-25 June 2015 as the Spanish representative.

This research work has been developed in the group of Dr. B. Ferrari of the Institute of Ceramic and Glass (ICV-CSIC) in collaboration with the group of Prof. P. Colombo the University of Padua and the group of Dr. E. Gordo of GPT-UC3M.

This research is part of the PhD thesis “Additives Processing in the shaping of Ti and hydroxyapatite porous biostructures: Relevance of the synergy particle-gel” of Ms. Esther Molero Romero (directed by Dra. Begoña Ferrari and Dr. Antonio Javier Sanchez Herencia (ICV-CSIC)) in the frame of the Project MITICO (MAT2012-38650-C02-02).
