Dr. Rogerio "Roger" Lima received a B.S. in Physics (1992) and a M.S. in Materials Science (1995) from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Brazil . He worked two years (1996-1997) as a materials science lecturer at the same institution. From 1998 to 2001 he carried out his Ph.D. studies on Materials Engineering at the State University of New York at Stony Brook(USA), under the mentoring of Prof. Chris Berndt.
After obtaining his Ph.D., Dr. Lima joined the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) in 2001 as a Research Associate. He was promoted to the rank of Assistant Research Officer and Associate Research Officer in 2004 and 2008, respectively, and was awarded permanent position at the NRC in 2006. He was appointed as a Senior Research Officer of the NRC in 2015.
Dr. Lima has authored/co-authored 61 refereed (peer-reviewed) journal papers and has received several awards of excellence. His refereed papers on thermal spray science and technology have been cited more than 1800 times by other authors and his h-index is 25 (source: Scopus – February 19, 2016).
Dr. Lima has given invited talks in North & South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. He serves as a referee for several international materials science journals and he is the Co-Editor for the Proceedings of the International Thermal Spray Conference 2006, 2007 and 2009 (ITSC 2006, 2007 and 2009), Leading Editor of the ITSC 2012 and 2013 proceedings and invited Co-Editor for the 9 special editions of the Journal of Thermal Spray Technology related to the ITSCs 2006-2014.
Dr. Lima's main research interest is the application of thermal spray technology in aerospace, automotive, structural and additive manufacturing engineering.
