Emanuel Carlos received from NOVA School of Science and Technology his PhD degree in Nanotechnologies and Nanoscience’s in 2021. He has been working in solution-based metal oxide electronics since 2015, focusing on sustainable materials and technologies. Currently, he is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the CENIMAT|i3N of NOVA Science and Technology School (FCT-NOVA). He has been participating in national (Neuroxide) and international (i-Flexis, 1D-NEON, SuperSmart, Digismart, FOXES) research projects in the area, with academia and industry. He published more than 16 peer-reviewed papers (h-index=10, 548 citations) in high-impact journals and 2 book chapters in this area. He has won several poster awards at prestigious conferences, and recently he won his first national project (Supreme-IT) as Co-PI and the 1st prize on the Fraunhofer Portugal Challenge based on his PhD thesis.
His research aims to investigate solution-based metal oxide thin films for diverse electronic devices such as transistors, memristors, and diodes.
His current research interests include the development of printed metal oxide materials; including dielectric, semi-conductive and conductive oxides, using low-temperature processes to produce sustainable electronics and enable their upscale for large-scale manufacturing.
