AlmaScience welcomed its Scientific and Technical Director

In November AlmaScience has welcomed Luís Pereira as Scientific and Technical Director.

Luís joined AlmaScience after consolidating his research career at Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia/Universidade Nova de Lisboa (FCT/UNL), where he was Professor from 2012 to 2020. His initial research has focused on the development of 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 acting as gate dielectric. In 2015, he was awarded with a prestigious European Research Council (ERC) Starting grant on the development of cellulose nanocomposites for paper electronics (New-Fun, project 640598). He has authored and co-authored more than 180 publications in peer-reviewed journals and proceedings of the ISI with more than 10000 citations.

His recent research interests relate with the design and synthesis of 1D, 2D and 3D inorganic and hybrid nanostructures, chiral cellulose nanocomposites, functional micro and nanofibers and its integration on chromogenic, electronic and electrochemical devices.
On a brief declaration, stated

“I am thrilled with this new challenge. It means recognition, opportunity, and responsibility as well as a huge commitment both with our government and with AlmaScience associates, to turn valuable knowledge and enabling technologies into products and services towards a more sustainable society.“

Carlos Silva, ASc CEO and president of the Board, comments that “Provided the track record and career of Luís, he was an obvious option to take the lead on the scientific and technical strategy of AlmaScience. We are very confident on his capabilities and on his success”.
