Helena Alves

Investigador Principal

short CV

Helena Alves joined CICECO, in Aveiro University, in July 2014. She received her PhD in Chemistry in 2004, from Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon. After two years as a post-doc at the same University, she moved to Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands for two years as a guest researcher. In November 2008, she joined INESC-MN in Lisbon as a principal researcher. Her’ interests lie in the area of material chemistry and solid state physics, nanotechnology and advanced applications (flexible, transparent and wearable) in particular organic semiconductors and molecular electronics. She has a background on chemistry and materials science, with a good and solid insight of correlating solid-state materials structure and design with electronic, magnetic and optical properties. This broad knowledge on material properties and potential applications, allowed her to achieve the actual position at CICECO, and as a guest scientist in one of the reference institutes in nanotechnology in Portugal. The international experience and roles in different scientific institutions has enabled her to establish a broad scientific network. She has presently 35 published papers in high quality international journals such as Nature Materials, Nature Communications, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Advanced Functional Materials, Scientific Reports, or Journal of Material Chemistry. She has participated and co-coordinated several research national and international projects. She actively promotes science within a young public, through several outreach activities such as visits to schools and a blog with science experiments for children.
