Daniel Fernández González
He is an Engineer in Mining Engineering (2013) and a Master's in Materials Science and Technology (2014) (University of Oviedo). He obtained Ph.D. from the University of Oviedo (2019) with a dissertation on the utilization of solar energy in metallurgy and materials. Postdoctoral Researcher (Juan de la Cierva-Formación, granted by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation) in the Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology Research Center of the Spanish National Research Council. Author of 6 full-length books and 35 articles in indexed journals. His research focuses on the application of concentrated solar energy in materials science and metallurgy (recovery of valuable elements from slags, ferroalloys, and other processes), ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy, agglomeration of materials (ceramic or non-ceramic) using conventional and advanced sintering processes (spark plasma sintering or laser sintering) and recycling-valorization of metallurgical wastes.
