Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
Carlos Rinaldi obtained his undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez, in 1998. Later he attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he participated in the David H. Koch School of Chemical Engineering Practice (MSCEP 2001), and completed an MS (2001) and PhD (2002). He was awarded the J. Edward Vivian Award for Exemplary Performance and Commitment to the David H. Koch School of Chemical Engineering Practice. In the summer of 2002 he served as Assistant Station Director for the MIT Practice School in Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, Mizushima, Japan. In the fall of 2002 he joined the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez, and is currently an Associate Professor. At UPRM, Carlos Rinaldi has been recognized as Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering (2003-2004, 2004-2005) and was awarded the NSF CAREER grant in 2006. Dr. Rinaldi’s research interests are in nanostructured materials, particularly systems with dispersed magnetic nanoparticles. Students in his laboratory work on magnetic nanoparticle suspension hydrodynamics and rheology, magnetic nanoparticle based sensors, magnetic fluid hyperthermia (a novel form of cancer treatment), and developing magnetic nanofibers for anticounterfeiting applications.
Dr. Rinaldi’s research is supported through the US National Science Foundation, Puerto Rico NSF EPSCoR, the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund, the Puerto Rico Space Grant Consortium, and the Institute for Textile Technology.
