Julio A. Rodríguez Manzo, Ph.D

Before joining Hummingbird Scientific Dr. Rodríguez Manzo dove into in-situ microscopy platforms to study the growth of nanomaterials and the function of electronic devices with high spatial resolution at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Strasbourg, in France—after finishing his Ph.D on materials science in Mexico (IPICYT). Currently, he is involved in the development and application of new in-situ microscopy instrumentation.
