Dr. Endzhe Matykina holds a Candidate of Science degree in Chemical Sciences and Electrochemical Engineering (2002, Kazan National Research Technological University (KNRTU), Russia) and a PhD in Materials Science and Corrosion (2006, The University of Manchester (UoM), U.K.).
Over the period of 2006-2017 she worked as a postdoctoral researcher at UoM (U.K.), JAE-Doc Research Fellow at CENIM-CSIC (Spain) and Ramon y Cajal Research Fellow at UCM. She is currently an Associate Professor at UCM. She has been working in the area of Materials for Health since 2003, developing bioactive coatings for Ti and Mg alloys by conventional and advanced electrochemical techniques, including anodizing, electrochemical deposition and plasma electrolytic oxidation.
Her interests primarily lie in tailoring of the surface chemistry, microstructure and topography, aiming for hybrid hierarchical functionalized biomaterials, and in studies of corrosion mechanisms of biomaterials based on metal/ceramic systems. She closely collaborates with cell biology and tissue engineering specialists. During her career Dr Matykina has published over 100 articles in peer-reviewed journals with 4688 citations and h-index of 39 (Scopus).
