About

Ana Pires, graduated in Materials Engineering in the Department of Materials and Ceramic Engineering (DEMaC) of the University of Aveiro in 2010, and completed the Masters of Biomedical Materials and Devices in 2012 in the same University. Since 2013, does research in Magnetocaloric Materials at CFNUL (University of Lisbon Nuclear Physics Center) in close collaboration with IFIMUP (Institute of Physics of Materials of the University of Porto). In 2016 started the PhD in Physics in the Institute of Physics of Materials of the University of Porto, incorporated in MAP-Fis Doctoral programm. The Dissertation is designate as "New Nanogenerator for thermal Energy Harvesting". My scientific activity/research interests are focused in experimental Solid-State Physics and Materials Science and Engineering. More precise, in the transport properties studied such as: electrical resistivity, thermoelectric power, thermal conductivity and magnetoresistance. Production of micro-thermoelectric materials by solid-state reaction, 2D thermoelectric materials by Ion Beam Deposition, 0D thermoelectric materials by co-precipitation technique and composites using 0D and 1D thermoelectric materials. Also, in the physics of cross coupling effects in complex magnetic materials, ie. coupling of lattice, spin and other degrees of freedom in magnetocaloric, magnetostrictive and magnetoresistance compounds, production, macroscopic characterization and local probe studies. Structural, magnetic and electric phase transitions induced by temperature, magnetic fields and/or pressure analysis.
