Biography

Marco Domingos is a senior lecturer in the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering at the University of Manchester (UK). He graduated in mechanical engineering (2006) from the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria (Portugal) and holds a PhD (2013) cum laude in mechanical engineering from the University of Girona (Spain). Before joining the University of Manchester (2014), he worked for two years (2010-2012) as an assistant researcher in additive manufacturing at the Centre for Rapid and Sustainable Product Development - CDRSP (Portugal) and for 1 year (2013) at Dias de Sousa, SA (Portugal) in the field of medical imaging. Since 2019 he is a principal investigator at the Henry Royce Institute (Manchester), where his group develops advanced biomaterials and biofabrication strategies for application in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (TE&RM). 

He holds several visiting professorial positions at prestigious institutions including the Institute of Composite and Biomedical Materials, University of Naples (Italy), the Centre for Rapid and Sustainable Product Development (CDRSP), Polytechnic Institute of Leiria (Portugal) and the Centre of Reverse Engineering and Additive Manufacturing Innovation (CREAMI) - Department of Industrial Engineering of the University of Naples “Federico II” (Italy). 

He has authored or co-authored more than 50 publications in international journals, books and book chapters and holds 2 international patents.
