  Scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) platform for characterizing morphology and load-transfer processes in biological and chemical systems (FONDEQUIP 2015 – 2017)
Localized heat treatment to produce ADI like microstructures in SG cast iron (PCI International Networks 2016 – 2018)

Equipment wear is an important problem in the mining industry, an integral part of the Chilean and Australian economies. This project, led by Professor Diego Calentano, aims to address this problem by hardening the outer layers of nodular cast iron through new heat-treatment techniques.
