Gil Gonçalves graduated in 2003 in Industrial Chemistry at University of Aveiro (Portugal) and obtained a Master degree in Materials Science (EMMS, Joint European Master's Programme) in 2008, his thesis was based on polymers nanocomposites from renewable resources. In 2012 he received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Aveiro with a thesis dedicated to nanocomposite materials for biomedical application. Between 2012-2016 he worked at University of Aveiro as a Postdoctoral fellow on the development of new carbon nanoplatforms for multimodal cancer therapy. His research interests are focused on development of novel graphene-based nanocomposite materials with application on many different fields: Graphene based porous structures for heterogeneous catalysis (Catalysis) and water purification (Environment), three-dimensional graphene scaffolds for biomedical applications (Biomaterials), SERS active nanostructured substrates based on graphene for selective biomolecules detection (Sensors) and carbon-based nanoplatforms development for detection and therapy of cancer cells and tumours (Therapeutic agent) Recently, he started working at Institute of Material Science of Barcelona (ICMAB) - UAB Barcelona under a prestigious Marie Curie Grant for the Development of Ultra-Sensitive Nanotherapeutic Anticancer Agents for Boron Neutron Capture Therapy. In 2015 he became Editorial Board Member of Scientific Reports: Nature Publishing Group, on the field of chemical physics.
