Ruben Salgado received his BS (2014) and MS (2016) degrees Cum Laude in Material Science and Engineering, with a focus in electronic and magnetic materials, from the University of California – Riverside (UCR). He joined Professor Balandin’s Nano-Device Laboratory (NDL) in 2012 as an Undergraduate Researcher working on development of novel materials for thermal management systems of lithium-ion batteries and state-of-the-art microprocessors. He participated in investigation of thermal properties of nanostructured magnetic and graphene materials. He has interned as a Materials Researcher at the Wright Patterson Air Force Research Laboratory and as a Packaging Engineer at the Bourns, Inc. His current research focus is on nano-fabrication and characterization of electronic devices based on low-dimensional materials.
