Dr Tatiana Correia
The Knowledge Transfer Manager for Nanotechnology and Metrology for The KTN, Tatiana Correia supports innovation and knowledge transfer across the nanoscale manufacturing and metrology community dealing with issues of instrumentation adoption, characterisation of advanced materials (including 2D materials) and surfaces, nano-based sensors and energy harvesting technologies, online quality control and compliance with underpinning regulatory regimes.
Dr. Correia has more than ten years' experience in research and exploitation of materials manufacturing, modelling and characterization. Previously she led research in functional materials and metrology for energy storage and refrigeration at the National Physical Laboratory. Tatiana Correia is the author of several scientific papers and co-editor of the book ‘Electrocaloric Materials: New Generation of Coolers'. She is also the co-inventor of a ceramic material for energy storage at high temperatures, a project in which she led a consortium of academic and industry partners in the development of a capacitive product from TRL1 to TRL 7.
A physics graduate from the University of Porto, she later received a MSc degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Aveiro University. In 2010 she obtained a PhD at Cranfield University whilst conducting research into the development and characterization of ferroelectric thin films for electrocaloric refrigeration.
