Rolando Pérez Álvarez has a degree in Physics, a Master in Physics, a Doctor of Mathematical Physical Sciences and a Doctor of Science from the University of Havana, Cuba. He was Research Professor at the University of Havana from 1972 to 2006. Since 2007 he is Senior Research Professor C at the Autonomous University of the State of Morelos, Mexico. He belongs to the National System of Researchers, level III. All his life he has worked in Physics of Condensed Matter. Since the 80’s of the last century, he specializes in Low Dimensional Systems, such as Quantum Wells, Superlattices, Doped Delta Systems, Quasi-regular Systems and more recently Carbon Nanotubes, Graphene and other two-dimensional Systems. In these systems he has studied their electronic structure, the oscillations of the crystal lattice (phonons), as well as their optical, electrical and some thermoelectric properties. He is a specialist in Green’s Functions and Transfer Matrix techniques, topics in which he has made theoretical contributions. At the same time, he develops work on topics of Classical Physics such as the heat transport in novel systems such as those with phase change materials. Within this group, Dr. Pérez Álvarez participates in the calculation of phonons of graphene slabs and in the study of thermoelectric phenomena in graphene multilayers, with interest in the immediate future to extend these analyzes to other two-dimensional systems such as borophene, stanene, boron nitride, etc.

Among his research works, we can mention the Dynamic homogenization of composite and locally resonant systems and, particularly, the generalization of the effective elastodynamic theory of Willis to piezoelectric and magnetoelectric metamaterials. This research line aims to derive bianisotropic con- stitutive relations that describe the macroscopic response of inhomogeneous media satisfying causality, reciprocity, and energy conservation and study unconventional cross-coupling properties and their poten- tial to manipulate mechanical and electromagnetic waves efficiently.

His interest in 2D systems includes a) Piezoelectric planar Willis materials and the dynamic behav- ior of the electro-momentum modulus, which is a novel coupling property that connects the electric displacement field with the velocity field in inhomogeneous piezoelectric media with asymmetric mi- crostructure, b) the use of Bianisotropic Metasurfaces for efficient manipulation of acoustic or in-plane waves; anomalous refraction and reflection of waves based on the Generalized Snell Law, and c) the study of Topological phases in non-Hermitian 2D settings.
