Marinélia Capela



Marinélia Capela is a researcher at the Department of Materials and Ceramic Engineering and CICECO - Aveiro Institute of Materials at the University of Aveiro. She graduated in Ceramic and Glass Engineering (2000) and obtained her master's degree in Biomedical Materials and Devices (2015). Recently, she obtained her PhD in Biorefineries (2023) at the University of Aveiro in association with the University of Coimbra. She has published 16 SCI papers (h-index=8) and presented 7 oral communications and 29 posters at national and international conferences. Furthermore, Capela has actively participated in 8 R&D projects and worked in the R&D department of a company in the ceramic sector. Throughout her professional career, in addition to work with traditional ceramics, she study bioactive glass and glass ceramics, and investigated the recovery of industrial wastes in ceramic pigments, traditional and one-part geopolymers, cementitious mortars, and self-hardening binders and adsorbents.
