Álvaro Eguiluz Castro

Alvaro Eguiluz Castro is a PhD student at the Institute of Ceramics and Glass (CSIC, Madrid) working on additive manufacturing of materials by FFF technologies. He joined the group in July 2019. Mr. Eguiluz got a degree in Chemical Engineering by the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM, Madrid) with a final project in water treatments. He finished the Master Degree in Chemical Engineering in June 2019 with the final research project “Processing of Titanium Carbonitride materials through Fused Filament Fabrication manufactured from colloidal suspension” at Rey Juan Carlos’ University.

His research interest is focused in the design and processing of the new organic/inorganic feedstock with high inorganic loads capable to be used by FFF technologies to manufacture complex shaped pieces. He also is developing activities in the colloidal processing of metals focused to its implementation into the powder-metallurgy industry.
