Technical University of Madrid
Dr. Elena Cerro-Prada received her PhD in Physics from Autónoma University of Madrid (UAM). She lectured at the University of Birmingham, UK, and worked at CERN, among other research and academic positions. Dr Cerro-Prada currently serves as Professor and Head of the Physics Department in the School of Civil Engineering at the Technical University of Madrid (UPM). Dr. Cerro -Prada has contributed greatly to the understanding of cementitious materials microstructure by nano-characterization and modification with nanoparticles. She is currently involved in the development of titanium dioxide nanoparticles to provide cement-based materials with photocatalytic properties, as well as computational nanotechnology for smart cementitious materials.
