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 Material Science, 1974; and Ph.D. in Material Science, 1977 at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Dr. Sanchez is the author and co-author of more than 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. His primary interest is the development and application of first principles computational methods for the construction of phase diagrams of multi-component material systems. Other research interests include the development of laser-controlled selective chemical vapor deposition processes for metals, alloys and ceramics.
