Alan Osiris Sustaita Narváez, Ph.D.

Research Areas:

  • Fabrication and development of insulators/semiconductors polymer composites
  • Memory and sensor devices based on carbon, clay or metallic nanostructures
  • Manufacture of organic devices for applications in alternative energies

Alan Sustaita obtained his B.S. degree in physics engineering at the University Autonomous of San Luis Potosí, Mexico, in 2007. He obtained a Master’s degree in applied science in optics at the Research Institute for Communication and Optics of San Luis Potosí (IICO), Mexico, in 2010. He went on to earn a Ph.D. in advanced materials at the Institute for Scientific and Technological Research of San Luis Potosí (IPICYT), Mexico, in 2015. From 2015 to 2016, he did a postdoctoral research in the area of Engineering Sciences at Tecnológico de Monterrey (ITESM), Monterrey, Mexico. He is currently a research professor of The Mechanical and Materials Department of Engineering Sciences at Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico. Also, he is the newest addition to the National System of Researchers (SNI) obtaining the category of SNI1.


Within his experience, Dr. Sustaita has completed research temporal stays at the Microsystem Technology Laboratories of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT); at the Materials Science and NanoEngineering, Department of Rice University; and at the Universidade Federal do Parana in Brazil. He has published eight articles in different international peer-reviewed journals, and also participated as a researcher in two projects of technological development. The research areas of interest are the fabrication and development of organic devices for alternative energies based on carbon nanostructures or clays. He has contributed to the development of insulators and semiconductor polymeric composites memories and sensors devices studying physicochemical, electrical and optical properties.
