Izabel Fernanda Machado


Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Escola Politécnica (EP)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Izabel Machado graduated from the University of São Paulo in Metallurgical Engineering (1992); also got both her Master degree (1995) and PhD (1999) also from the University of São Paulo (USP). Currently, holds the post of Associate Professor in Mechatronics and Mechanical System Engineering Department at USP. Has done research on materials characterization, phase transformations in alloys, mechanical and tribological behavior of materials focusing on different manufacturing processes. Regarding materials evaluation, has acted on machinability study and its relation with the microstructure and mechanical behavior. Has also done research on sintering by means Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS), using metal alloys and ceramics for different applications, including tools. This work has its onset at Trento University (Italy) in 2008 (Sabbatical). Conducted research on interfaces evaluation in copper- boron carbides composites at University of California in Davis for 6 months (2020). Porosity effect on the tribological behavior and performance has been evaluated as well as the manufacturing of self-lubricating materials using SPS. Recently, has use Artificial Inteligente as a tool to evaluate processing and mechanical behavior of materials. Share the coordenation of Surface Phenomena lab( LFS - with Prof. Dr. Roberto Martins de Souza.
