Dr. Edilso Francisco Reguera Ruiz

Profesor Titular C, Instituto Politécnico Nacional (IPN), Unidad: Centro de Investigación en Ciencia Aplicada y Tecnología Avanza, U. Legaria

Investigador Nacional Nivel 3

Temática de Investigación-Desarrollo: Tecnologías de Materiales; Materiales para Tecnologías de Energías Renovables

El Dr. Edilso F. Reguera Ruiz es Físico de Formación (1972-1977), en 1988 obtuvo el grado de Dr. en Ciencias Químicas, y en el 2010 se le otorgó un doctorado de 2do nivel en Física atendiendo a su obra de la vida en Física de Materiales. Ha formado 36 maestros y 37 doctores en Ciencias, de ellos 31 y 25, en México, respectivamente. Ha publicado 255 artículos científicos, de ellos 225 en revistas JCR, 7 Capítulos de Libros. Sus publicaciones acumulan un total de 3811 citas, con los siguientes: h = 33; i10 = 105. Tiene 2 patentes otorgadas y 7 en trámites en el IMPI.

Entre noviembre de 1977 y octubre de 1999 estuvo trabajando en el IPN con una Cátedra Patrimonial de Excelencia de CONACyT Nivel II. A partir de noviembre de 1999 comenzó a trabajar en su institución actual de inscripción (IPN) como profesor e investigador. En los últimos 10 años el foco de su atención en lo relativo a investigación-desarrollo ha estado en la obtención y estudio de materiales avanzados para tecnología de energías renovables. Durante esta década ha desarrollado una intensa actividad, de impacto nacional, en la promoción de la investigación científica en el área de las energías renovables, a través de conferencias, seminarios, proyectos en redes, y la realización, desde el 2012, de un taller internacional anual sobre esta temática (IWECS: Internacional Workshop on Energy Conversion and Storage). A partir de los resultados obtenidos en esa área, en el 2016 propuso y se aprobó la creación del Laboratorio Nacional de Conversión y Almacenamiento de Energía, fruto de un proyecto conjunto CONACyT-IPN con la UNAM como institución asociada, laboratorio que actualmente es una unidad con certificación ISO. Este LN tiene entre sus principales objetivos, la investigación-desarrollo sobre energías renovables, la generación de patentes, desarrollos tecnológicos, el diseño, construcción y evaluación de prototipos, y la generación de micro-empresas Spin-Off y Startup en tu área temática; además, de las actividades de formación de recursos humanos y vinculación con la industria nacional. Luego en 2017 promovió y se creó el Laboratorio Nacional de Ciencia, Tecnología y Gestión Integrada del Agua, también fruto de un proyecto CONACyT-IPN con otras dos instituciones nacionales asociadas, orientado al desarrollo de tecnologías nacionales para este importante sector.

En estos momentos el foco de su atención es contribuir a que el país transite hacia una Economía del Conocimiento. Para ello promueve en el IPN y otras instituciones nacionales de educación superior y de investigación, la necesidad de que los investigadores y las instituciones nos rediseñemos en el sentido de que se priorice incluir entre nuestros productos no sólo publicación de artículos y formación de recursos humanos, sino, además, patentes, desarrollos tecnológicos, empresas tecnológicas tipo spin-off, spin-out y startup, que se traduzcan en riquezas para el país y más puestos de trabajo altamente remuneramos para el pueblo de México. El país tiene recursos humanos formados para transitar hacia una economía basada en tecnología.
