Marco Domingos joined the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering on 9th of June 2014 as a Lecturer in Advanced Manufacturing. Prior joining the University he was Scientific Advisor in Dias de Sousa SA, in Portugal where he was the main responsible for the areas of MRI, micro CT and melt extrusion. He was also Research member at the Centre for Rapid and Sustainable Product Development (CDRSP), Leiria, Portugal, where he carried out his research activities in the area of Additive Manufacturing, Biomanufacturing, Polymer Processing and Product Development.
He holds a PhD Cum Laude in Mechanical Engineering (2013), awarded by the University of Girona, Spain, with a thesis on Mechanical and Biological Characterisation of scaffolds produced with Biocell Printing. He obtained his degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria with a thesis on Cellular materials for industrial applications.
His main research interests encompass Additive Manufacturing, Biomaterials, Biomanufacturing, Organ Printing, Stem cells, Drug delivery systems and Bone and Cartilage Regeneration.
He his Visiting Researcher at the Institute of Composite and Biomedical Materials, University of Naples, Italy, Associate Editor of the Virtual and Physical Prototyping Journal published by Taylor, associate member of the Alba Synchroton Light Facility (Spain), associate member of the Diamond Light Source (UK), associate member of the ISIS, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Oxford, UK, associate member of the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF).
In 2008 he was awarded with a research grant from the Italian Government for research in polymeric materials for industrial and biomedical applications. Marco has authored or co-authored more than 55 publications, including international journals, books and book chapters, gave more than 30 lectures in national and international conferences and have 6 national patents. His research work has been published in high impact factor journals like Progress in Polymer Science, Acta Biomaterialia, Biofabrication Journal, CIRP Annals among others.
