Professor Miguel Angel Rodríguez Pérez
Miguel Angel Rodríguez Pérez is a Full Professor of the Condensed Physics Department of the University of Valladolid in Spain. He is a very well-known scientist in the field of cellular materials since he co-funded the Cellular Materials Laboratory in 1999.
His research activities have been constantly focused on developing new knowledge and technologies in the field of cellular material and due to the work carried out during the last 20 years he has managed to publish almost 200 papers in JCR journals, he has participated and/or managed more than 40 public funded projects, (European Projects, national and regional projects) and more than 60 private funded projects. Besides that, he has participated in more than 150 scientific conferences and he has directed more than 20 PhD theses, (more than 15 in the last 10 years).
Some of his developments in the cellular materials field have resulted in several patents, (11 patents) from which three of them are currently under exploitation. In other cases, the projects ruled by him have given as a result products that are nowadays commercial in several countries.
Professor Rodriguez-Pérez’s Laboratory has received three awards in the last 10 years. These awards recognize the high quality of the research activities performed in CellMat Laboratory and the high level of innovation that he, has head of the Laboratory is keen to maintain.
His international prestige has allowed him to become a member of the Boards of Directors in the Foams and Thermoplastics division of the SPE (Society of Plastic Engineers) as well as to be a member of the two JCR journals that are exclusively focused on polymeric cellular materials: Cellular Polymers and Journal of Cellular Polymers.

Since 2001 he is the Technical Director of the “Industrial Testing Laboratory of Castile and Leon” (LEICAL).
In 2012, together with other researchers of the CellMat Laboratory he created the spin-off company CellMat Technologies SL (www.cellmattechnologies.com). Nowadays he is the CEO of this company that was born with the main objective of transferring knowledge and technology in the field of cellular materials to its industrial partners.
