Marcelo Videa Vargas, Ph.D.


Research Areas:

  • Electrodeposition of metallic nanoparticles.
  • Nanostructured materials through imposed spatial and diffusional constraints.
  • Thermal characterization pharmaceutical ingredients.

Marcelo Videa is a full professor in the Department of Chemistry and Nanotechnology and the School of Engineering and Sciences at Tecnológico de Monterrey, and adjunct professor of the Department of Chemistry at Rice University. He was director of the Bachelor of Science program in chemical sciences and engineer in nanotechnology and chemistry from 2001 to 2015. He obtained a degree in chemistry from Tecnológico de Monterrey in 1993, and a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from Arizona State University in 1999, with the study of transport properties in lithium battery electrolytes.

He is the author of 33 publications, among which 22 are articles in indexed journals and 2 book chapters. In addition, he has done consulting work in the area of ​​materials for batteries and capacitors in projects with companies such as Johnson Controls, KEMET México and Enerya. He is a member of the National System of Researchers, level 2, for the period of 2018-2021; the Mexican Academy of Sciences; the Mexican Society of Electrochemistry; and the Mexican Chemical Society.

His research focuses on the electrochemical synthesis of metallic nanoparticles and the kinetic control of nucleation and growth processes, in order to achieve the control of the size and shape of the nanoparticles. Applications of such materials are directed to electrocatalysis and the development of sensors based on the surface plasmon phenomenon. He collaborates with Dr. Luz María Martínez's group in the thermal characterization of materials of pharmaceutical interest.
