Assistant Professor of Industrial Engineering and Biomedical Engineering
Ramses V. Martinez received a B.A. in Applied Physics from the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid in June 2004 and a Ph.D. in Physics and Materials Science from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) in 2009.
Before joining the faculty at Purdue, Dr. Martinez was a postdoctoral research associate in Prof. George M. Whitesides’ Lab in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University, where he was primarily involved in several projects in the areas of nanofabrication, microfluidics, and soft robotics. His research focused on the on the development of scanning probe nanolithographies based on the spatial confinement of chemical reactions within a liquid meniscus. Dr. Martinez is author of more than 25 scientific publications and 9 patents. He has been awarded with the Fulbright Fellowship and the Marie Curie IOF grant for his work in the lab of Prof. Whitesides at Harvard.
