Biography

My research interests include corrosion protection of active metals, cathodic protection of reinforced concrete and electrochemical analysis. I did my PhD at University of Lisbon, Portugal where I developed organic/inorganic coating with long life time in aggressive chloride solution. Later on, I worked on cathodic protection of steel with application of pulse and direct current in bacterial contaminated area in Delft University of Technology, Netherlands.
I joined Cambridge university to work in corrosion triggered damage of concrete. Corrosion of reinforced concrete is usually associated with chloride attacks. I have been responsible of setting up a potentiostat machine for performing necessary electrochemical tests to evaluate corrosion of concrete including electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), linear polarisation and potentiodynamic polarisation. My aim during this project is to develop materials that chemically triggered with chloride ions and retard the corrosion process and even heal physical damages.
