About

Dr Esau Del Río is Electronic Engineer graduated from Queretaro Institute of Technology (Instituto Tecnológico de Querétaro), Mexico. He obtained his bachelor degree with the thesis entitled “Growth and characterization of heterojunction lasers”. Afterwards, he moved to San Luis Potosi, Mexico, for his M.Sc. degree in IPICyT where he worked in the project “Interaction of Carbon Nanotubes and Biological Systems”. He obtained the degree of M.Sc. in Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies in 2008.
Esau obtained his PhD degree from the Universita degli Studi di Trieste (UniTs) in 2012 with the project entitled “Towards self-assembled devices, a carbon nanotube approach”. Esaú was awarded a full scholarship from CONACyT (Mexican government) to develop his PhD studies. Esau made a research stay in the University of Cambridge in the Engineering Department.
Then, Esau moved to the Castilla la Mancha University (UCLM) in Spain, as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, in close collaborations with industry. He participated in several projects founded by a private group, European Union and the Spanish government.
At IIT Esau is involved in the development of electronic devices based in 2D materials, he is part of the Graphene Flagship founded by the European Union.
