Ricardo Arpad Pérez Camargo is a Materials Engineer with a Master's in Materials Engineering from the Simón Bolívar University (USB) in Caracas, Venezuela. Later, he pursued a Ph.D. in Applied Chemistry and Polymers Materials from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) in San Sebastián, Spain, where he worked under the guidance of Prof. Alejandro J. Müller and focused on the crystallization and morphology of various multiphasic systems. His thesis was recognized as an Exceptional Ph.D. thesis of the UPV/EHU (Period 2019-2020).


Ricardo received the prestigious President’s International Fellowship Initiative (PIFI) in 2019. This enabled him to undertake postdoctoral research at the Chinese Academy of Science (ICCAS) in Beijing, China. His research focuses on the structure, morphology, and crystallization kinetics of different polymeric systems, including homopolymers, random copolymers, particularly isodimorphic ones, and blends. At ICCAS, he continued his research with funding from the China Postdoctoral Science Foundation and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) until 2023. Ricardo's research was recognized with the Young Scientists of the Institute of Chemistry Award from CAS in 2021. In 2023, he was awarded the Advanced Manufacturing Research Fellowship Programme in the Basque-New Aquitaine Region (ADAGIO), an MSCA COFUND Post-doctoral program. This allowed him to return to UPV/EHU and focus on combining his expertise in crystallization with an innovative processing technique, such as 3D printing, to process semicrystalline polymers.
