Ana Paula Piedade has a BSc in Biochemistry, a MSc in Cellular Biology and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering- Materials Science from the University of Coimbra, Portugal. Since 2014 she is Assistant Professor at the Universidade de Coimbra and in 2021 with Habbilitation. She as more than 120 scientific outputs of published work in Conferences and in scientific journal, mostly from Q1 and with high impact factors. She was the director of Bioengineering and Polymer Synthesis Group of CEMMPRE- University of Coimbra until 2018. She is/was PI of more than 10 National and International projects from competitive funding calls. She participated in more than 30 National and International Evaluation Panels for Pos-Doc and PhD Grants, as well as for Research Projects. The scientific activity reflects the different approaches, made throughout the years, always related to materials, its characterization and application. Actually, the interest relays on different areas such as micro and nanotechnologies and additive manufacturing, particularly 4D printing. With the major concern of using environmental sustainable technologies, within the frame of circular economy, green technologies, such as sputtering is used for the modification/production of nanostructured, functionally graded and hybrid nanocomposites surfaces. Also bacteria are used as "living tools" both as producers of sustainable non-pollutant materials and as tools for micromanufacturing. In her curriculum Ciência Vitae the most frequent terms in the context of scientific, technological and artistic-cultural output are: Functional graded surfaces; Hybrid nanocomposites; Non-metallic antimicrobial surfaces; Additive Manufacturing; 4D printing; Surface modification; Immobilization of prokaryotic cells; Carbynes; Sustainable production and manufacturing; Characterization; Nanostrucutured surfaces; Bacteria raw material suppliers; Bacteria as living tools.
