    Hi everyone
    I'm Juan Canaza, I'm from Bolivia, I'm studying Materials Science, I joined SAMPE last year while I was doing an internship in The Center for Composite Materials (CCM) at University of Delaware, my research was about carbon nanotubes incorporated in composites, I am grateful for my experience in CCM, I learned many manufacturing processes like RTM, VARTM, autoclave, sizing, and others. I like these materials, in my country composites industry are not developed, in the future I would like to be a professor in composite materials in my University and have my research group, because in my country many people in the industry don't know what are composite materials, and I think that Composite Materials are the Future, right now I'm looking for another research opportunity in the composite materials field, and later I want to apply for graduate program.

    I expect from Mega, opportunities and collaboration to work with me and to develop composites in my country, I would like to make a great student community in composites in Bolivia.

    Feel free to contact me if you have question

    SAMPE Brazil is really the only formal and active region near you in Bolivia. Their conference is in Sao Paulo in November 2018 and they have student activities that may interest you.
