Short CV

After my graduation in Ceramics and Glass Engineering from University of Aveiro (UA) in 1997, I had some years of experience both in ceramic industry and doing research in Department of Materials Engineering and Ceramics (DEMaC-UA) in the field of traditional ceramics and recycling.

I obtained my Master degree in Ceramics and Glass Engineering from UA in 2007, and since then my main research interest lies in the area of glasses and glass-ceramics. My parallel research interest comprises the production of glass foams from glass wastes.

In 2012 I obtained the PhD degree under the supervision of Professor José M.F. Ferreira and Dr. Dilshat U. Tulyaganov.
