Eric Rosas joined CENAM in 2001 as the Scientific Coordinator of the Optics and Radiometry Division; maintaining five Mexican National Standards, including that for luminous intensity and its SI base unit, the Candela. He obtained his B.Sc. degree in Physics in 1994 from the Autonomous State University of Mexico and his Ph. D. from the State University of Guanajuato (CIO) in 1998. He has been guest researcher at the National Institute for Nuclear Research (Mexico, 1992-1994), the State University of New York (U.S.A., 1997), and the Imperial College London (UK, 1998) were he also worked as postdoctoral research assistant (1999-2000).
