Catarina Bianchi received the MSc. degree in Materials Science and Engineering from FCT/UNL in 2015, with the dissertation “Flexible and Transparent Thermoelectric Temperature Sensor”.  

Catarina is currently a PhD student working on the development of Thermoelectrics based on conductive oxides: thin films and 3D printing under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Isabel Ferreira.  She is currently working as a researcher on the CapTherPV project focusing on the development of photo-thermoelectric thin films. 


Main scientific interests: thermoelectric materials and devices, flexible and transparent electronics, 3D printing and renewable energy.
