Dr. Tsyntsaru’s area of expertise is in eco-friendly electrodeposition, anodization, nanostructurization, tribology, materials science, alloys, mechanical, corrosion properties.
She completed her PhD in electrochemistry at the Institute of Applied Physics, R. Moldova in 2007. After her research on termokinetics phenomena during electrodeposition of alloys at the same institute, as a Marie Curie Fellow, she joined the KU Leuven, Belgium in 2010, where she carried out her research on tribological, mechanical, corrosion properties of Co-W alloys, including anodization of aluminum. This led to the elaboration of multifunctional coatings/materials that could be proposed for versatile applications
She is author or co-author of more than 60 papers in peer-reviewed journals. She has been the participant of 17 projects, from which 10 EU/international projects, and 5 of them she was leading.
