short cv

Gil Gonçalves graduated in 2003 in Industrial Chemistry at University of Aveiro (Portugal) and obtained a Master degree in Materials Science (EMMS, Joint European Master's Programme) in 2008, his thesis was based on polymers nanocomposites from renewable resources. In 2012 he received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Aveiro with a thesis dedicated to nanocomposite materials for biomedical application. Now, his research interests are dedicated to the development of novel graphene based nanocomposite materials, specifically on the synthesis, characterization and the study of their properties. The main application fields are: Graphene based porous structures for heterogeneous catalysis (Catalysis) and water purification (Environmental applications), three-dimensional graphene foam as a biocompatible and conductive scaffold for biomedical applications (Biomaterials), SERS active nanostructured substrates based on graphene for selective biomolecules detection (Sensors) and Graphene Oxide nanoplatforms development for detection and therapy of cancer cells and tumours (Therapeutic agent).
