Teaching & PhD


Materials Science and Engineering


Structure of materials

Introduction to materials structure including crystallography, the structure of amorphous materials such as glasses, polymers and biomaterials as well as the basics of characterization techniques.

Mathematical methods for materials science

The aim of the course is to review mathematical concepts learned during the bachelor cycle and apply them, both conceptually and computationally, to concrete problems commonly found in engineering and Materials Science in particular.

Optical Materials: Fundamental concepts and recent developments

In this class we will review the fundamental origin of the optical properties exhibited by different classes of materials. We will then give examples of the most up-to-date research on optical materials in a few growing scientific and technological fields.
