Centre for Doctoral Training in Ultra Precision Engineering



Francisco is currently a third year PhD student at the IfM under the supervision of Professor Bill O’Neill.

Francisco studied a B.Sc in Mechatronics, he then studied for an M.Sc in Manufacturing systems at Tecnologico de Monterrey which included a six month research stay at Rutgers University.

In 2012, he joined the Center for Doctoral Training in Ultra Precision at the University of Cambridge where he obtained an MRes degree in 2013.

Research interests

  • Laser & ion beam micromachining
  • Ultra-fast laser-matter interaction
