Guerrero, Assistant Professor of the Department of Physics, was selected as awardee of the 2008 National Academy of Science and Technology (NAST) Talent Search for Young Scientists in the field of Physics.

Dr. Guerrero, along with two other scientists from the University of Santo Tomas and the University of the Philippines-Los Banos (UPLB), had to present his paper before a panel of judges last April before being chosen as the grand winner.

Dr. Guerrero presented his paper on volume holographic storage which introduces bigger data storage for computers and a new way of producing images.
