Erick Espíndola Pérez

PhD student

Bio: I did my B.Sc. in Nanotechnology, from the Western Institute of Technology and Higher Education in México; there I worked on alumina nanopores for DNA-sequencing. Then I moved to The Netherlands to complete my M.Sc. in Nanotechnology from the University of Twente. As part of my master, I developed biomimetic materials based in bacterial cellulose and calcium crystals at TUDelft. At Twente, my thesis was the creation of an autocatalytic reactions of a surfactant product to generate micro-droplet swimmers, involving the fabrication of microfluidic devices and chemical characterization using nuclear magnetic resonance.

In September 2021, I joined the STORM-BOTS Network as the ESR-3 at CSIC, Spain; where I pursue a PhD in Physics at the University of Zaragoza. My work is focused on the 4D printing of liquid crystal elastomers devices, the task is to endow these materials with multi-responsiveness to heat, light or electromagnetic fields, that could help take them into real applications.

Hobbies: I like to play racquet sports, cook Mexican food and discover new genres of music.

Research Interests: Liquid Crystal-based Devices, Advance Fabrication, Nanotechnology
