Miguel Jose Yacaman
Professor and Department Chair
Dr Jose Yacaman’s research is very broad and had made contributions in several fields of Physics, Materials science and Nanotechnology .One of the focus of his research has been the correlation of structure and properties in nanomaterials. He has developed Electron microscope methods to study nanoparticles and 2-D materials. He has published more than 550 papers in peer review journals. During his career he supervised around 100 graduate students and Postdoctoral fellows. His present interest is to develop the nanoscale equivalent of High Entropy Alloys and to develop new catalysts to produce cleaner fuels.
