Additive manufacturing technologies allow exceptional design freedom, part customization and
component lightweighting, while facilitating the generation of unprecedented micro- and
metastructures. This talk will further emphasize their potential as tools for sustainable manufacturing.
Highlighted examples include laser powder bed fusion of soft magnetic amorphous metals for efficient
e-motors, and of lattice structures with meta-precipitates with exceptional specific structural
Bio: Dr. Teresa PÉREZ-PRADO, Senior Scientist, heads since 2008 the Sustainable Metallurgy group at
IMDEA Materials Institute. Teresa was Division Leader between 2014 and 2017 and Deputy Director
between 2017 and 2021. From 2018 to 2022 she coordinated the programme on Structural Materials
at the Spanish National Science Foundation. Dr. Pérez-Prado got a PhD in Physics at the
Complutense University in Madrid in 1998 and an MBA at INSEAD, France, in 2008. After a 2 year
postdoctoral stay at the University of California in San Diego, USA, she joined the National Center for
Metals Research (Madrid, Spain) in 2001, where she worked as a tenure-track fellow until she was
granted a Tenured Scientist position in 2004. Dr. Pérez-Prado has coauthored 145 papers (h 48,
≈8700 citations (Google Scholar)), 1 book (Elsevier, 2004) and 3 patents. Teresa belongs to the
