DR. CAROLINA ANGULO PINEDA

Master in Mechanical and Materials Engineering and PhD in Engineering Sciences with a mention in Materials. She carried out her main doctoral research in 3D printed Electroactive Polymeric Compounds for applications in Tissue Engineering. She worked on electrical stimulation of stem cells and bacteria attached to 3D printed structures during her academic visit at the University of Manchester, UK. In addition, she has extensive experience in the characterization of nanomaterials and in the synthesis of compounds of silver nanoparticles and nanomaterials based on graphene, nanofilms and metallic nanostructures. She is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the FIC, Viña campus, where she works with composite materials using natural particles, obtaining 3D structures of bioactive compounds for potential uses in bone regeneration.
