ARTES warmly congratulates Ignacio J. López Hernández on a successful viva of his PhD thesis, and on the publication of a monograph based on his doctoral research, Ingeniería e ingenieros en Matanzas. Defensa y obras públicas entre 1693 y 1868 (Seville: Athenaica, 2019). Ignacio’s research was supported by ARTES through an ARTES Coll&Cortés Travel Scholarship which allowed him to conduct research at the University of Lincoln in 2017. This stay in the UK also helped Ignacio shape his current postdoctoral project at the Politecnico di Torino.
