Orlando Santana Pérez

Graduated in Materials Engineering, specialty Polymers from the Universidad Simón Bolívar (USB, 1990. Caracas, Venezuela) and MgSc in Materials Engineering from the same university (1994) In this period his research focused on physical-chemical characterization (thermal ) with the Group of Polymers of the USB under the direction of Prof. Alejandro Müller. In 1997 he received the  PhD Industrial Engineering title from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), focusing his work on the relationship between processing and the mechanical and fracture behavior of polymeric systems under the direction of Prof. Antonio Martínez Benasat.

Since 1997, he has been part of the management team of the Center Catala del Plástic (CCP), a public research and development consortium, currently being responsible for the Characterization and fracture area. He is a member of the Research Group recognized by the Generalitat de Catalunya: ePLASCOM (Ecofriendly plastics and composites) led by Prof. M. Lluïsa Maspoch and coordinating the area of ​​reactive polymer processing. He has published more than 100 scientific articles, 75 of them in indexed journals. He has participated in a total of 21 competitive R & D & I projects at European, national and regional level.

The research areas in polymeric materials in which he focuses his activity are:

  • Reactive polymer processing.
  • Rheological behavior
  • Thermal and calorimetric behavior
  • Mechanical and fracture behavior

His scientific activity is carried out in parallel with his academic activity as Associate Professor at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), at the Barcelona-Este School of Engineering (EEBE), Department of Materials Science and Engineering, with 3 teaching five-year terms and 4 recognized six-year periods of investigation.
