Joselito M. Razal

Dr. Joselito Razal was born in Manila, Philippines on November 4, 1979. He earned his Bachelor in Science degree in Chemistry from University of the Philippines at Los Baños on April of 2000. He joined the Chemistry Department at the University of Texas at Dallas on the Fall Semester of 2001. The heat of Summer 2002 did not stop him from joining the NanoTech Institute. Since then, he became heavily involved in numerous projects in the nanotechnology field including developing high performance materials for multifunctional applications. Aside from research involvements, he has always engaged in intramural athletics to promote individual and team competition. Whenever he is not at work, he is either out in the field playing volleyball, or in a tennis court, trying to get better at making the right decisions at the right time.
