Professor of Practice
Materials Science and Engineering
Raymundo Case is a Materials scientist with 28 years’ experience in materials selection, Fitness for Service and corrosion control in the oil and gas industries. Obtained PhD in Corrosion Science from UMIST, UK in 2002, working on localized corrosion of corrosion resistant alloys in sour producing environments. During the 28 years had the chance to author and coauthor of over 30 publications in peer reviewed journals and proceedings, as well as a reviewer for several Corrosion and Electrochemical journals. He received the 2016 Technology Award from NACE International and the 2013 Technological Achievement prize from Conoco Phillips. Actual position Professor of Practice for the Texas A&M Materials Science Department. Previous positions: Staff Scientist in Conoco Phillips and Technical Consultant for Petrobras’s International Business.
