Natalia joined INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory – as a Research Engineer in the Nanochemistry Research Group. She is currently working on synthesising, characterising, and applying sustainable coatings with self-healing solutions.
Being an Aircraft Maintenance Technologist from the Federal Institute of Sao Paulo (IFSP), she has a more technical approach towards research. She holds a Master’s Degree (MSc) in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Sao Paulo (USP) where she worked with self-healing polymeric coatings projects and developed her master's thesis on the synthesis of refractories ceramics materials for thermal insulation. She is also a Production Engineering Specialist, which helps her understand the industry needs and apply them to her projects.
