Prof. Carlos Eduardo Cava is visiting us from January 1st to June 30th, 2024, in the framework of the Dresden Fellowship Program from the German Research Foundation.

Laudatio:

Dr. Carlos Eduardo Cava earned his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Material Science and Engineering from the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR) in 2006 and 2012, respectively. He developed an experimental and theoretical study about Iron-Oxide-Filled Multi-wall Carbon Nanotubes applied as gas sensors. During his doctoral studies, he pursued advanced research under the mentorship of Prof. Lucimara S. Roman, with a research year at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, where he worked under the guidance of Prof. Clas Persson. Since 2013, he has worked as an Associate Professor at the Federal University of Technologic- Paraná, Brazil, Campus Lonrina.
Dr. Cava's current research interests lie at the intersection of nanomaterials, gas sensors, and solar cells.
As a Dresden Fellow, the focus of his research is to understand the interaction of several composite materials with gases related to diseases in the human body. With the development of more sensitive gas sensors with better selectivity, diagnosing certain diseases via detecting gases in human breath can become more and more reliable.
