Huyra Araujo

YCN representative from the Brazilian Ceramic Society 

Federal Institute of Sao Paulo


My name is Huyra Araujo, and I am an Associate Professor at the Federal Institute of Sao Paulo. Although my background is in Physics, I dedicated my MSc. and Ph.D. studies to Ceramic Science. I have finished my Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering in 2016 and since then my research works have been carried out with a special focus on Ceramic Processing and Sintering Phenomena. Besides attending international conferences in the area, I had the experience as a Fulbright Scholar at the University of South Carolina ( 2017-2018).

 Although my previous research subjects have been related to solid electrolytes, currently we work with the development of sintering models and experimental modeling approaches based on activation energy, microstructure profile and engineering and processing parameters. The research has been conducted at the Federal Institute of Sao Paulo with wide participation of undergraduate research students from Engineering areas, with up to twenty fellowships in the last years. Additionally, the group has developed an intersectional discussion between ceramic science and diversity in STEM.
