Daniela Gomes (born 1983) received the Ph.D. degree from Instituto Superior Técnico in 2012, in Materials Engineering, with the dissertation “Carbon dispersions in nanostructured metals”. The degree was obtained with merit. Since 2013, she became a Post-doctoral researcher at the CENIMAT/i3N of FCT-UNL. The post-doctoral work is entitled “Design of new functional materials for electronics applications”, which is financed by Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia through the scholarship 84215/2012. She is also working at the Nanofabrication lab at CENIMAT, which she is the main operator of the dual-beam SEM-FIB microscope. Since October of 2015, she became Assistant Professor at the Materials Science Department of FCT-UNL lecturing the courses of Micro and Nanotechnology seminars and dissertation initiation, among others. She is co-author over 60 peer-reviewed papers (h-index=17, as November 2019). She co-authored 1 book and 1 book chapter. She participated on the EU project, CEOPS project with the grant agreement no: 309984.
