New faces at MCN

New Staff_Artboard 1The Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication Centre has welcomed two new staff members to its ranks in the past few months, with Tatiana Pineda Rivera and Hazem Abdelmaksoud joining the team.

Tatiana has recently joined our lithography and characterisation team of process engineers. Having moved from Mexico to France to study, received her PhD in 2009 from the Université Grenoble Alpes, where she specialised in surface and colloid science and microfluidics. In 2011, Tatiana came to Australia to join Professor Paul Mulvaney’s Nanoscience Laboratory at the University of Melbourne.

Hazem has taken up a joint role, working with both the MCN and MCN Tech Ambassador, Victor Cadarso. At MCN, Hazem is responsible for wet etching benches in the cleanroom and leading biochemistry lab inductions for users.
