Speaker's Details

Dr. Ana LuĂ­sa Daniel da Silva

University of Aveiro, Portugal

Ana Luísa Daniel-da-Silva completed her PhD in Materials Science in 2005 (University of Alicante, Spain). Since June 2009, she is Researcher at CICECO-Aveiro Institute of Materials and Chemistry Department of the University of Aveiro. Her main scientific interests concern the development of nanostructured materials including functional nanoparticles and nanocomposites for applications in nanomedicine, bionanotechnology and water remediation. In particular, she is interested in novel strategies for surface modification with biopolymers and synthetic routes for preparing nanomaterials with innovative and enhanced properties, aiming the development of green nanosorbents and biocompatible nanomaterials. She is author/co-author of 2 patents, 11 book chapters and around 90 papers in SCI-indexed journals. Also, she is co-author of the book "Surface Chemistry of Colloidal Nanocrystals" (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2021) and has co-edited the book "Nanocomposite Particles for Bio-applications: Materials and Bio-interfaces" (Pan Stanford, 2011). She has been strongly involved in several teaching activities namely by lecturing topics for post-graduation students within the subjects Nanochemistry and Frontiers of Inorganic Chemistry. As part of her academic activities, she has been involved in communicating chemistry for non-specialized audiences, in particular issues related to Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials
