About Rodrigo de Oliveira

I am an assistant professor of chemistry at the State University of Paraíba, Northeast of Brazil. I started my position in April 2012 and since then I am trying to develop more knowledge on how polyP can act as a colloid arresting agent. I have focused my work on bentonite and laponite, with the objective to make new functional materials. For laponite based systems, we envisage that they may be good for tissue engineering, in the form of Wigner glasses, shear-thinning hydrogels and coacervates. Once our group is concerned to the development of new materials, collaborations are vital to exam them as potential biomaterials.
