Plasma Processing and Technology International Conference 2023

Speaker's Details

Dr. Tiago Silva

Instituto Superior T├ęcnico- Lisbon, Portugal

Tiago Silva completed the MSc in Physics Engineering at Instituto Superior Técnico at the University of Lisbon, Portugal in 2011 and received his PhD degree (physics domain) from the University of Mons, Belgium in 2015. Currently, he is an Invited Assistant Professor at the Physics Department of Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, Portugal, in the Scientific Area of Plasma Physics, Lasers and Nuclear Fusion. He is also a Junior Researcher (contracted via individual scientific employment of FCT) at the Institute of Plasmas and Nuclear Fusion (IPFN), in the team of N - Plasmas Reactive: Modelling and Engineering (N-PRiME), a group that explores the potential of nonequilibrium low-temperature plasmas for tailoring energy and matter at the nanoscale level and for reaching new horizons in space exploration. He was recently awarded a Fulbright Grant to conduct a research project at the Massachusetts Insititute of Technology (MIT) targeted at exploring the potential of plasma technology to convert CO2 into oxygen in the Martian environment.
