Jose Hernandez Torres obtained both my professional title of metallurgical engineer and my master’s degree in Extractive metallurgy in 2014. In 2020, I finished my PhD studies at Universidad de Santiago de Chile, in the Engineering Sciences doctoral program, with mention in Process Engineering. Currently, I am a researcher at the Chilean Nuclear Energy Commission (CCHEN). My work can be separated in two different areas: the development of new methodologies for the purification of valuable elements through metallurgical and chemical processes, focused towards the production of radiopharmaceuticals for nuclear medicine: uranium, molybdenum and rare earths; and chemical purification of materials for energy sustainability.
