Short curriculum vitae

Roberto Martins is Assistant Researcher from CESAM & Dep. of Biology, University of Aveiro (2021.00386.CEECIND). He is also member of the General Council of the University of Aveiro since July 2021. He obtained his degree in Teaching of Biology and Geology at the University of Aveiro (ECTS grade: A; final mark: 17/20; awarded the 5-y degree' best student prize) and his PhD in Marine Biology at the University of Aveiro, in 28/02/2013. 


He published 43 ISI papers (h-index=16), 1 book chapter and presented >80 communications. Currently, (co)supervises 2 Post-Docs (from UNESP-Brazil), 2 PhD students, 1 PhD internship (from Univ. Tunis), 5 MSc students (3@UNESP) and 5 Research Initiation undergraduated students (1@UNESP) . Currently, coordinates the project "NANOGREEN - Towards a new generation of sustainable nano-based additives for maritime anti-corrosion smart coatings: a multidisciplinary framework within the Atlantic", a cooperation between Portugal and Brazil, including also a R&D SME, funded in the framework of the call "R&D Projects on the Occasion of the Celebrations of the V Centenary of the Circumnavigation Voyage - 2019"  (brief video). He is also member in additional 10 projects (7 international: 3 H2020, 3 FAPESP and 1 CNRS; 3 national: 2 FCT and 1 ANI/P2020), and offers also a large set of integrated services on ecotoxicity and efficacy of coatings. 


He was one of the guest editors of a special issue completely dedicated to Green Nanotechnology, published in the Journal "Applied Sciences" (mdpi.com/si/49618). Since 2019, he has been Invited Professor in the State University of São Paulo (IB-UNESP São Vicente) and, later, Foreign Visiting Professor in the University of São Paulo (IO-USP thanks a PrInt PVE grant). 


Research is focused on the effects of novel engineered nanomaterials with anti-corrosion and anti-fouling properties along a marine trophic chain. Main research interests are related with ecotoxicology, namely the assessment of exposure, bioaccumulation and biomagnification effects of nanomaterials, corrosion inhibitors and anti-fouling biocides in marine organisms as well as of novel “green” products that could prevent and/or control corrosion in maritime structures with low environmental risk. Simultaneously, keep several international collaborations in the domain of the ecology and taxonomy of polychaetes, mainly of the family Lumbrineridae.
