Dr. Paula Marques

Universidade de Aveiro

Paula Marques graduated in Chemistry in the Universidade de Aveiro (UA) in 1993, completing her Master’s in Chemistry and Physics Teaching in 1997 and the PhD degree in Materials Science Engineering (Biomaterials specialization) in 2003 in the same institution.
Paula’s research interests are the engineering and development of carbon-based nanostructured composites for health and environmental applications. She published +75 papers in international peer reviewed journals, six book chapters, two books and has two national patents requested. The quality of her work is expressed by the number of citations (+2580) and h-index of 25. Paula participated in 25 R&D projects with 9 in progress. In April 2019 Paula will start the coordination of a H2020-FETOPEN project (A step forward to spinal cord injury repair using innovative stimulated nanoengineered scaffolds).
Paula is responsible for teaching the course “Carbon Nanostructures” of the PhD program in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Technologies and Processes at Nano-Scale of the 5th year of Mechanical Engineering Master and is also supporting recurrent teaching activities in Materials Science Engineering. She has completed the supervision of 6 post-doctoral researchers, 5 PhD and 8 MSc, and is currently supervising 2 post-doctoral researchers, 6 PhD and 1 MSc student.
