Cesar Diaz Londono Ph.D.

Cesar is currently serving as an Assistant Professor at Politecnico di Milano in the Department of Electronics, Information, and Bioengineering. He earned his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electronics Engineering from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in 2014 and 2016, respectively. Cesar holds a double doctoral degree, having completed his Ph.D. in Engineering at Javeriana and the Ph.D. in Electrical, Electronics, and Communications Engineering from Politecnico di Torino in 2020. 

He graduated with Cum Laude honours for his master’s degree, and his doctoral thesis received the highest honours. Following his academic achievements, Cesar served as a postdoctoral researcher at Politecnico di Torino in 2021. Additionally, he undertook two visiting research positions, one at Delft University of Technology in early 2024 and another at Chalmers University of Technology later that year. His research expertise is centred around the integration of electric vehicles into the electrical grid. He actively engages in collaborative research projects with industry partners specialized in electric vehicle chargers. Additionally, he contributes to the development of real-time controllers for electrical grid studies. His diverse experiences have honed his skills in research, teaching, and managing both independent and team-based projects. He has also established valuable collaborative relationships with peers across various universities. Cesar is committed to advancing his career and making significant contributions to the fields of energy management and electric vehicle integration. The results of his research have been disseminated in over 35 scientific publications, including conference papers and journal articles.

Hector Rene Vega Carrillo Ph.D.

Hector has a large experience in research and teaching in Nuclear Sciences. His research interests include experimental and computational spectrometry, dosimetry of neutrons and gamma-rays, and design of subcritical nuclear reactors using uranium and thorium as nuclear fuel. He has published more than 200 papers in scientific journals and more than 40 books. He participated in several scientific meetings presenting more than 450 papers.
