Isabel Gutiérrez

CEIT, Spain

Isabel Gutiérrez was born in Irun, Spain. She received the Licenciatura degree in physics and the Ph.D. degree in physics by the University of Navarra in 1979 and 1985, respectively. In 1984, she joined the Materials Department at CEIT, as being responsible for the transmission electron microscopy. Since 1989, she has also been an Associate Lecturer at Tecnun–University of Navarra. At present, Gutiérrez is a Senior Researcher and the Codirector of the Thermomechanical Treatment Group at CEIT. His main research lines are physical metallurgy and relations between microstructure and material behavior at different temperatures, and main topics are microstructure evolution during hot deformation, fine characterization of the interface on diffusion-bonded metallic couples, precipitation, hot workability of duplex and high alloy austenitic stainless steels, recrystallization, grain growth and texture, transformation from the austenite: acicular ferrite, austempering, dual phase steels, transient effects produced by a strain reversal, and microstructure-based property models. He has participated in 50 research projects. This activity has produced the supervision of 18 doctoral theses. The collaboration in the design of tailored equipment for performing thermomechanical simulations at laboratory scale resulted in two patents. Nonconfidential results have led to slightly over 150 papers published at international journals and conferences. She is, at present, Member of the Coordination Committee of the Spanish Steel Platform (Platea) and of the Technical Group TGS6 of the Research Fund for Coal and Steel of the European Commission
