Juan Carlos RamosProcess Development Engineer HP, Inc.3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing
Juan Carlos Ramos, is a process development engineer in 3D printing metals at HP, Inc. He works in multiple projects related with additive manufacturing by binder jetting, specifically in powder characterization, powder-hardware-binder interactions, and productivity optimization. He works closely with customers to translate their needs into actionable plans for printing processes development. Previous to his position with 3D, Juan Carlos worked for HP in materials development for MEMS, printed-electronics, and life-sciences. Before joining HP, he was a scientist for Solution Deposition Systems (SDS), a start-up where he co-developed a technique to produce conductive materials for LEDs and smart-windows.
Juan Carlos received his Ph.D in Materials science from a program between the University of Ciudad Juarez (Mexico) and the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) where he developed a technic of reactive inkjet-printed electronics. He was later a postdoctoral at Center for Sustainable Materials Chemistry (CSMC) in Oregon State University where he worked in developing thin-film by solution processes for applications in electronics.
In addition to his technical work, Juan Carlos has been actively involved in mentoring, intra/entrepreneurship, and relationships with universities for partnerships and technology transfer. He is member of the Committee of Minority Affairs of the American Chemical Society and SACNAS Leadership Institute.
