Prof. Luis Pereira has finished his Ph.D. in Microelectronics and Optoelectronics in 2008 at Universidade Nova de Lisboa. He is currently Associate Professor at Materials Science Department, School of Science and Technology, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa (FCT-NOVA),  and researcher at CENIMAT/I3N - FCT/NOVA where coordinates and participates in R&D projects. He has been granted in 2015 with a Starting Grant of the European Research Council (ERC) on the development of cellulose nanocomposites for paper electronics (New-Fun, project 640598). Apart from lecturing and scientific activities, he is currently Vice-President of the TCM Network, member of the Board of the Portuguese Materials Society (SPM) and  member of the Board of the Materials College at Portuguse Engineers Association (Ordem dos Engenheiros).

Áreas de Investigação

The expertise gained on oxide materials for electronics allowed focusing the pos-doc activities on the development printed inorganic nanostructured materials for chromogenic, electronic and electrochemical devices on paper and plastic substrates. He was involved in the team that demonstrated for the first time transistors made of oxides with paper as dielectric. He has authored and co-authored more than 180 publications in peer-reviewed journals and proceedings of the SCI with more than 6700 citations and has a H factor of 41 (Web of Science).

Interesses Científicos

His current research interests are on the design and synthesis of 1D, 2D and 3D inorganic and hybrid nanostructures, chiral cellulose nanocomposites, functional micro and nanofibers and it integration on chromogenic, electronic and electrochemical devices, including energy conversion and energy storage devices.
