Short CV

Susana Olhero (SO) is nowadays a Principal Researcher in CICECO (Aveiro Institute of Materials)/UA (University of Aveiro) and member of the Executive Board of Department of Materials Engineering and Ceramics (DEMaC)/CICECO/UA. SO has a Doctorate degree in the field of Material Science and Engineering from University of Aveiro (2006). From 2006-2014 was a pos-doc researcher at University of Porto and University of Birmingham, in strong collaboration with CICECO/University of Aveiro. From 2015-2018, SO was Assistant Researcher at CICECO/UA (FCT grant (IF/00951/2014). The focus of her research has been the development of 3D structures by near net shaping colloidal-based techniques, including additive manufacturing of various functional ceramics for several applications, including biomaterials for bone regeneration. Susana Olhero is author of 73 publications in peer review international journals, 2 book chapters and 1 national patent, with over 1650 citations, h-index 25. Susana Olhero supervised/Co-supervised 2 PhD, 11 Master Thesis and several research fellows (Pos-doc and PhD) from her Projects.
