Dr. Kate Trompeta is a Chemical Engineer, graduated from the National Technical University of Athens. She has accomplished her Master studies on Material Science and Technology, funded by the ΙΚΥ Fellowship of Excellence for Postgraduate Studies in Greece – Siemens Program and she was awarded for her excellence by the Limmat Stiftung Institute.
Her research interest focuses on organic coatings, especially in industrial and marine paints, reinforced with nanoparticles (carbon nanotubes, metal oxide nanocontainers, etc). Currently, she is dealing with the synthesis and functionalization of carbon nanotubes for advanced applications, as well as with the Life Cycle Assessment of nanomaterials production processes.
Her work experience is related with European Research Projects, which are dealing with advanced composited reinforced with carbon fibres, as well as their recycling aspects. Part of her research work has been presented in national and international conferences and several related publications in peer reviewed journals have been published the last years; some of them have been also awarded.
