Juan M. Sanchez

Dr. Juan M. Sanchez is the Vice President for Research at The University of Texas at Austin and holder of the Temple Foundation Endowed Professorship #4 in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He obtained his B.S.in Physics at the University of Cordoba, Argentina, 1971; M.S. in Materials Science, 1974; and Ph.D. in Materials Science, 1977 at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Dr. Sanchez is the author and co-author of over 140 technical publications on a wide range of topics in materials science and engineering. His current research interests are in the electronic, thermodynamic and structural properties of materials including intermetallic compounds, magnetic and non-magnetic alloys, thin films and magnetic multilayers. Primary interest is the development and application of first principles computational methods for the construction of phase diagrams of multicomponent material systems. Other research interests include the development of laser-controlled selective chemical vapor deposition processes for metals, alloys and ceramics.

Dr. Sanchez serves as a Representative to the Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable of the National Academies, member of the Committee on Science, Engineering and Public Policy of AAAS, and member of the Advisory Council of the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health. Dr. Sanchez is past member and Chair of the Visiting Committee for Advanced Technology of NIST, and a past member of the Board of Visitors of the US Army War College.
