Personal information

João Paulo Heitor Godinho Canejo, since 2013, is a post-doc researcher at the Materials Science Department at the New University of Lisbon. He is a member of the Soft and Biofunctional Materials Group (SBMG) of the Faculty of Science and Technology of New University of Lisbon (FCT/NOVA), where he is the responsible for laboratory of the group


He has a PhD and MSc degrees in Materials Science from Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia/NOVA University. He was a member of the organizing committee of the 6th International Liquid Crystal Conference, ILCEC 2011, held in Lisbon (Portugal) from 5th to 7th September 2011.

His research is focused on the production of micro/nano fibers using electrospinning, mainly of cellulose derivatives. In addition, he is interested in the deposition, and characterization of cellulose micro/nano fibers electrospun from the liquid crystalline phase. Using cellulose-based anisotropic phases he is much involved in the study of the formation of helical structures in the micro/nano scale.

João Canejo is also involved in the morphology and mechanical characterization of non-woven membranes, which can be used as filters.
