Global assembling of Academicians, Researchers, Scholars & Industry to disseminate and exchange information at 100+ Allied Academics Conferences
M. Clara Gonçalves graduated in Chemical Engineering (from IST, Universidade Técnica de Lisboa) though her scientific career has been developed in Materials Science. She started as a scholarship at LNETI (Ceramic Group) (1985) and as visiting researcher at Instituto de Cerámica y Vídrio, Madrid, Spain. In 1986 she joined the IST as a Trainee Assistant where she obtained her PhD degree in Materials Science, in 1993 (Heavy Metal Fluoride Glasses). She was a visiting researcher at Instituto de Física e Química de São Carlos, Universidade de São Paulo, Brasil, in 1990 (Prof. Michel Aegerter’s group), and at Laboratoire de Chimie Moléculaire, Université de Nice Sophia-Antipolis, France, in 1996 (Prof. Liliana Hubert-Pfalzgraf’s group) and a post-doc at the Chemistry Department of Southampton University, UK (Prof. George S. Attard’s group) (2000). In 2017 she obtained the Habilitation degree in Materials Science, from Universidade Nova de Lisboa. Her current teaching activities are largely in the areas of Science and Technology of Glass and Ceramic. Her research is carried out at Centro de Química Estrutural (CQE/IST) She edited 4 books, authored (or co-authored) 16 book chapters, 70 scientific papers, 1 International Patent, 2 trademarks.
her interests include the two overlapping areas: metastable materials (glasses, nanoparticles, photonic materials) and hybrid matrices (inorganic-organic).
