Ricardo Castro is an associate professor in the Department of Materials Sciences & Engineering at University of California, Davis. He joined UC Davis in 2009 and is the lead of the Nanoceramics Thermochemistry Laboratory, a lab dedicated to provide fundamental understanding, using experimental thermodynamics, of ceramic nanomaterials and their behavior under processing conditions and operation at extreme environments, such as high temperatures and radiation. Castro has a PhD in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering from the University of São Paulo, Brazil, and a Bachelor in Molecular Sciences from the same University. He has published over 60 scientific articles and has several outreach programs in course. He is the president of the National Institute of Ceramic Engineering, a member of the American Ceramic Society and Materials Research Society; and the creator of the Materials Magic Show and the Engineering Superheroes Program at UC Davis. Prior to joining Davis, Castro was a professor at FEI (Fundação Educacional Inaciana Pe. Saboia de Medeiros), a catholic university in São Bernardo do Campo, Brazil. FEI is an engineering school responsible for educating engineers for the biggest automotive complex in Latin America.
Castro has been awarded the Department of Energy Early Career Program award and the National Science Foundation Career Award, two of the most competitive awards for young researchers, both in 2011. He was also awarded the 2011 Society of Hispanic Professional Engineering Young Investigator Award, and the 2012 Outstanding Junior Faculty Award by the UC Davis College of Engineering. More recently, Castro was honored as 2013-2014 UC Davis Chancellor’s Fellow, the 2014 Robert L. Coble Award for Young Scholars by the American Ceramic Society; the 2015 Global Young Investigator Award by the Engineering Ceramic Division, and the 2015 Stig Sunner Memorial Award by the Calorimetry Conference.
