Juan M. Sanchez holds the Temple Foundation Endowed Professorship #4 in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He earned his B.S. in Physics at the University of Cordoba, Argentina, 1971; M.S. in Material Science, 1974; and Ph.D. in Material Science, 1977 at the University of California, Los Angeles. He joined UT Austin's mechanical engineering department in 1989 and later served as Vice President for Research for the university from 1999-2015.
Dr. Sanchez is the author and co-author of more than 140 technical publications on a wide range of topics in materials science and engineering. His current research interests are in the electronic, thermodynamic and structural properties of materials including intermetallic compounds, magnetic and non-magnetic alloys, thin films and magnetic multilayers. His primary interest is the development and application of first principles computational methods for the construction of phase diagrams of multi-component material systems. Other research interests include the development of laser-controlled selective chemical vapor deposition processes for metals, alloys and ceramics.
