Dr. Snezana Boskovic

Dr. Snezana Boskovic, Research Professor Emeritus, graduated from Belgrade University at the Technology-Metallurgy Faculty. From 1967 to 2008. she had been working in the Institute of Nuclear Sciences Vinca, in Materials Science Laboratory. As an A.von Humboldt Foundation fellow, she was bound to Max-Planck Institute, Stuttgart, Germany, where she did her Ph.D., too. The level of senior researcher(highest level) she got in 1990. The level of meritorious scientist of Serbia, she for from the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development in 2009. From 2001-2003 she was Assistant Director of the Institute of Nuclear Sciences Vinca in the area of technical/technological research. On the occasion of 50th Anniversary of ETRAN Society, in 2006., she was awarded Great Charter of ETRAN, for the exceptional contribution in spreading out the scientific ideas in the field of new materials. She used to give many times lectures both  in the country and abroad.

She published over 300 papers which are cited  more than 600 times, without auto-citation.

Basic scientific interests can be summerized  as : phenomena  occuring during sintering of oxide and non-oxide compounds in the solid as well as in the presence of the liquid phase,( lattice defects influence, activity of starting substances, etc.), diffusion mechanisam study during sintering and the solid state reactions, mechanochemical activation, phase transitions, phase equilibria, developing methods for nanopowder synthesis(SPRT- selfpropagating room temperature synthesis), and orriginal  modification of methods known in the litrature(GNP), which are preconditions for preparation of  nanostructural ceramic.
