The event will be held in Spanish  

Dr. Jarillo-Herrero has experienced first-hand several university systems, both in Europe and the United States. Now, with his own research group at MIT he can present a very complete view on the differences among different systems and what things work better than others to develop a career around science and research.

Pablo Jarillo-Herrero is currently Cecil and Ida Green Professor of Physics at MIT. Professor Jarillo-Herrero’s research interests lie in the area of experimental condensed matter physics, in particular quantum electronic transport and optoelectronics in novel two-dimensional materials, with special emphasis on investigating their superconducting, magnetic, and topological properties. He received his “Licenciatura” in physics from the University of Valencia, Spain, in 1999. Then he spent two years at the University of California in San Diego, where he received a M.Sc. degree before going to the Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands, where he earned his Ph.D. in 2005. After a one-year postdoc in Delft, he moved to Columbia University, where he worked as a NanoResearch Initiative Fellow. He joined MIT as an assistant professor of physics in January 2008 and received tenure in 2015. He was promoted to Full Professor of Physics in 2018. His awards include the Spanish Royal Society Young Investigator Award (2006), an NSF Career Award (2008), an Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship (2009), a David and Lucile Packard Fellowship (2009), the IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in Semiconductor Physics (2010), a DOE Early Career Award (2011), a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE, 2012), an ONR Young Investigator Award (2013), and a Moore Foundation Experimental Physics in Quantum Systems Investigator Award (2014). Prof. Jarillo-Herrero has been selected as a Highly Cited Researcher by Clarivate Analytics-Web of Science (2017-present), and was elected APS Fellow (2018), Fellow of the Quantum Materials Program of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR, 2019), and Member at Large of the APS Division of Condensed Matter Physics (2019). Prof. Jarillo-Herrero is the recipient of the APS 2020 Oliver E. Buckley Condensed Matter Physics Prize, the 2020 Wolf Prize in Physics, the 2020 Medal of the Spanish Royal Physics Society, the 2021 Lise Meitner Distinguished Lecture and Medal, and the 2021 US National Academy of Sciences Award for Scientific Discovery.

MECUSA presents Leveraging mentoring


MECUSA is organizing the webinar “Leveraging mentoring” given by Ruth Gotian, Ed.D., M.S. that will take place on September 9th at 4pm on Zoom.

Registratrion in this link.

The professional development path in science is long and full of obstacles, mainly for women and minorities. Having good mentors to advise us and help to fully develop our skills is essential throughout our whole career. The main goal of this seminar is to highlight the importance of having a good mentoring team and ways to form your own team. Mentoring teams are composed of several mentors of different backgrounds to work on different aspects, such as leadership, public speaking, management, conflict solving. Ruth will also talk about different mentoring models, which are not the traditional mentoring received by your supervisor. Mentoring could come from collaborators, professionals of other fields, peers or even family. In a seminar Ruth will guide us through this fascinating topic and we will discuss about why and how mentoring is important for women and minorities.

Ruth Gotian is the Chief Learning Officer and Assistant Professor of Education in Anesthesiology and former Assistant Dean of Mentoring and Executive Director of the Mentoring Academy at Weill Cornell Medicine. She has been hailed by the journal Nature and Columbia University as an expert in mentorship and leadership development. In 2021, she was selected as one of 30 people worldwide to be named to the Thinkers50 Radar List, dubbed the Oscars of management thinking and is a semi-finalist for the Forbes 50 Over 50 list. In addition to publishing in academic journals, she is a contributor to Forbes and Psychology Today where she writes about ‘optimizing success’. Her research is about the mindset and skill set of peak performers, including Nobel laureates, astronauts and Olympic champions. Her forthcoming book, The Success Factor, will be out in January.
