Eduardo Cejuela, Spain
From Julius Caesar to Composite materials
Eduardo Cejuela has a Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering for Universidad de Cantabria (Spain) and is performing his PhD in Coastal Engineering, investigating new possibilities of caissons technology, leveraged through the historical knowledge in this subject. He has published two papers about history of caissons construction and its new challenges and possibilities.
He has worked most of his professional career as a contractor in infrastructure projects, usually in contact with remote areas, that have marked his way of understanding engineering and ingenuity as a powerful tool to build in areas with limited access to technology. This way of understanding engineering has led him to investigate since the origin of caissons how they were built, and how could they be built today in very remote areas, by transporting it or by using technologies well known in some remote areas, as construction in fiber glass or composite materials could be.
He is now working as consultant for different engineering companies, mainly estimating costs and proposing method statements for construction of infrastructures in Africa’s remote areas.

Elena Gomez, Spain
Design and Synthesis of Nanoparticles with Biomedical Applications
Elena Gómez Piedrafita is a young woman, student and private teacher of Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics. She graduated in Chemistry at the University of Valencia, with honors in the final project, titled “Design and Synthesis of Nanoparticles with Biomedical Applications”. She is currently living in Brussels, studying English and looking for a job or remunerated internships. She is also looking for a master’s degree and a research group where she can continue her studies out of Spain during next year. She did an internship in the Institute of Material Science from the University of Valencia, where she followed by HPLC the epoxidation reaction of styrene using a cobalt catalyst, instead of the manganese complex that is commonly used (Jacobsen's catalyst). She loves reading and she has also worked as a proofreader for texts in Spanish.
