Introduction
As a Materials Engineer, I had the chance to work in several materials related areas. From applying Materials Science & Engineering I gained experience working with biomedical materials,aeronautical and space industry, composite materials, several materials characterization and manufacture techniques, nanotechnology, smart prosthetic devices and others. Joining new science & technology to well established know-how and creative techniques, wonderful things can be created.

Article
Laboratories and industries that handle chemicals are ubiquitously prone to leakages. These may occur in storage rooms, cabinets or even in temporary locations, such as workbenches and shelves. A relevant number of these chemicals are corrosive, thus commercial products already exist to prevent material damage and injuries. One strategy consists of...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we are presenting a design to fabrication system, which allows to produce efficiently and highly automated customised knitted textile elements for architectural application on industrial computer-controlled knitting machines (Computer Numerical Control (CNC) knitting machines). These textile elements can, in this way, be individual i...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Extending recent work on Form Active Hybrid Structures of Active Bend and CNC knitted (Computer Numerical Control) tensile members we present a set of innovations in design and manufacturing, which together allow to build structural systems, that morph across multiple structural states. While state of the art tools and fabrications methods in texti...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Membrane architecture uses currently off the shelf materials and produces the shapes and details through cutting and laborsome joining of textile patterns. This paper discusses investigations into an alternative material practice - knit - which engages bespoke membrane materials. A practice which allows for customised and graded material properties...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Recent advances in computation allow for the integration of design and simulation of highly interrelated systems, such as hybrids of structural membranes and bending active elements. The engaged complexities of forces and logistics can be mediated through the development of materials with project specific properties and detailing. CNC knitting with...
Article
Full-text available
The number of violent situations against security agents using cut and puncture elements, like knives and needles, are increasing daily all over the world. There is a real need for the development of flexible materials able to protect these security professionals without compromising their comfort in different working conditions. The aim of this st...
Poster
Full-text available
Within materials for biomedical applications, specifically for prosthesis, there is increasing attention for the development of prevention mechanisms detecting early stages of problems associated with implantation, preventing future complication like rejection and avoiding physical and psychological discomfort of patients. As one of the most import...
Book
This book illustrate the study and development of bioactive electrodes to apply in piezoelectric sensors for biomedical applications, respectively in internal orthopedic prosthesis. These electrodes are composed by Titanium doped with Silver and Gold. Titanium, being widely known for its biocompatibility, serves as electrical conductor, Silver acts...
