Jorge Alfredo Ferrer Perez
Born in Toluca, Mexico, in 1979. He received the B.E. degree in Physics from the National Autonomous University of Mexico, México City, Mexico, in 2003, the M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame, South Bend, United States, in 2011 and 2012 respectively.
In 2012, he joined the High Technology Center at the School of Engineering, National Autonomous University of Mexico, as a postdoctoral fellow where he leaded the efforts concerning with thermal control for micro-satellites. Likewise, he also coordinated the electric propulsion project to develop thrusters for microsatellites. Currently he is a Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at the School of Engineering, National Autonomous University of Mexico. His current research areas are: nano-heat transfer in solid state devices, thermal control and space propulsion for small satellites, and space technology.
