Diógenes Piva

Research Fellow
Nanochemistry

Diógenes Piva is currently a Research Fellow at Nanochemistry Research Group at the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) in Braga. His current project focuses on synthesis of fibers and nanoparticles with different morphologies for removal of environmental contaminants.

Diógenes Piva received his PhD degree in Materials Science & Engineering from Federal University of São Carlos in 2017. After his PhD, he worked at the Department of Chemical Engineering (Brazil), Research Center on Advanced Materials and Energy (Brazil) and the Laboratoire Catalyst et Spectrochimie (France) as a postdoctoral fellow from 2018 to 2021. During this period, he focused his research on synthesis of magnetic porous nanomaterials with core-shell structures. His scientific focus is in developing new synthetic strategies for synthesis of nanomaterials and nanostructures and their use in adsorption, catalytic and photocatalytic applications.
