Biography

ORCID iD: https://orcid.org/0000-0002-0788-3948
Nicolas Cordero graduated in 1990 from the Technical University of Madrid (UPM) with a MEngSc by research. In 1990 he joined the Tyndall National Institute (formerly NMRC) in Cork as a Research Engineer. At Tyndall he carried out research on numerical modelling of electronic and optoelectronic devices based on compound semiconductors (MESFETs, HEMTs, Schottky diodes, Lasers and LEDs). He has also worked on modelling of photo-voltaic (PV) systems. Since 2000 his research has focused on thermal management of electronic/photonic devices and systems and modelling and simulation of micro and nanosystems. He has been Tyndall’s technical leader for several European Projects dealing with thermal and energy-efficiency issues on the aerospace and automotive industries. He has also worked on multiphysics modelling, including medical applications. Recently he has been performing the role of Technical Point of Contact for European Access to Infrastructure programmes.
