Livia Riberios de Souza

PhD Research Student


Biography:

I am a PhD student in the Civil Engineering Division of the department and am supervised by Professor Abir Al-Tabbaa. My project, funded by the Brazilian government, aims to develop microcapsules to be used in self-healing of cementitious materials.

Before coming to Cambridge, I studied in Brazil where I obtained a B.Sc. in Chemistry and an M.Sc. in Mineral Science and Technology. My B.Sc. dissertation involved the synthesis and characterization of carbon nanofibers supported in CaO. My work took place in the laboratory of Catalysis & Environmental Chemistry and my thesis was awarded the maximum score of 100/100. During my M.Sc., I investigated the metal contamination in river and lake sediments nearby a former uranium mine affected by acid mine drainage. The isotopic fractioning analyses were performed during my stay at Department of Catchment Hydrology, UFZ-Halle, Germany.
