Ricardo Jorge Espanhol Andrade


Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie (UPM). Escola de Engenharia (EE)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Portugal

Ricardo Jorge Espanhol Andrade was born in Barreiro, Portugal. He obtained his B.S. degree in Polymer Engineering from University of Minho, Portugal, in 2005, and his M.S. in Formulation and Technology of Product from University of Huelva in Spain, in 2008. Furthermore, he was awarded a Fellowship from Portuguese Science and Education Ministry to pursue his PhD at Case Western Reserve University in Macromolecular Science and Engineering in Cleveland, USA, and finished in 2014. During his Ph.D. he worked on Polymer Rheology and Processing. Upon completion his Ph.D. work, he moved to a post-doctoral research position Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser of the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (IESL-FORTH), Crete, Greece, where he worked until October 2015 on Colloids Rheology, more specifically on Shear Thickening Systems. He is currently Assistant Professor at Graphene and Nanomaterials Research Center (MackGraphe). His current research cover topics such as understanding the complex relationship between thermo-mechanical history and the structure and morphology of polymer nanocomposites based on 2D materials (graphene, MoS2, hBN, phosphorene, etc.). It is also part of his research the study of dispersions of 2D nanomaterials under shear and extensional flows. His research intends to understand the fundamental mechanisms involved in the morphology and structure development of nanomaterials, with the aim to improve their properties for broad range applications, such as textiles, aeronautics, automobiles, oil recovery, printing inks, packaging and smart materials.
