Experienced with procedures concerning experiments in electronics, physics and cleanroom laboratories. Determinant contribution in projects with affinity to measurements, testing and characterization of materials, components, and devices. Specialised in ferromagnetism, electronic instrumentation, electrical characterization of materials, microfluidics, impedance spectroscopy, cleanroom procedures.

Researched complex fluids and soft matter with the emphasis in electrical characterization of multiphase fluids and liquid suspensions. Technical expertise involves analysis, with electrical impedance techniques, of magnetic materials, nanoparticle ferrofluids, and electrolytic fluids. Contribution in researching methodologies associated with microfluidics, electrical impedance sensing, microelectrode integration, cytometry and nanoparticle detection. Engineering applications involved microfluidic device fabrication and optimization, with a direct application the electrical actuation and impedimetric assessment of fluids. Resolved insulation and hydrophobisation problems in microfluidics and evaluated coated interfaces by means of electrical impedance, contact angle goniometry and ellipsometry. Other research contributions involve the determination of microscopic parameters of magnetic nanoparticles, such as size distribution, relaxation time, magnetic anisotropy and gyromagnetic ratio, which measured with broadband impedance spectroscopy. These measurements explained magnetic relaxation and resonance phenomena in ferrofluids. Inclusive specialization in topics relating to electromagnetism, including radio wave propagation, antennas, waveguides, transmission lines, and electromagnetic compatibility.

Optimization of the flowcell of a commercial benchtop calorimeter instrument. This industry joined project targets the improvement of the performance of the reagents mixing inside the flowcell of the calorimeter, also the enhancement of the heat transfer to the thermopile array, as well as the overall optimization of the sensitivity of the calorimeter, in order to improve the accuracy of the measurements of the thermochemical heat produced by enzymatic catalysed reactions inside the flowcell. This project involves complete redesign of the mixing flowcell as well as devises a new methodology for the calibration of the thermopile array.
Techniques: heat measurements, flowcell calorimetry, microfabrication, cleanroom, contact photolithography, micromilling, plastics bonding, contact angle measurements, atomic force microscopy, syringe pumping.
