González, director of the nanoscience and nanotechnology research group of the Geophysical Institute of the Faculty of Engineering of the Universidad Javeriana, is an expert in the creation of nanomaterials that serve, for example, to produce decontaminating filters, garments with self-cleaning properties , more efficient sun blockers and coatings for bacterial decontamination in hospitals and clinics.

His marked leadership in this field - he is founder and former president of the National Council of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology - allowed him, weeks ago, to be part of the group of eight outstanding Colombians who were chosen by President Juan Manuel Santos, to have their first online chat through Hangout, a Google+ platform.

He has even been internationally recognized for his work as a sculptor of nanoparticles of gold, silver, copper and iron oxide, among other metals.
