Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a chemical engineer with PhD and postdoctoral research experience in membrane technology and materials science (Low Carbon Technology and Nanostructured Materials). I am originally from Portugal and I've been working in Scotland since 2008, first at the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen and now at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.

My research background is quite eclectic and encompasses subjects such as synthesis, characterization and application of membranes, green composites, energy efficiency, rheology, computational fluid dynamics and mass transfer modelling.

Academic / Professional qualifications

  • 2016 - PG Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education / Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), University of Strathclyde
  • 2008 – PhD in Chemical Engineering (Instituto Superior Tecnico - Technical University of Lisbon) / Thesis: Fluid dynamics and mass transfer in protein ultrafiltration (Supervisor: M. N. de Pinho)
  • 2000 – Graduation in Chemical Engineering (Instituto Superior Tecnico - Technical University of Lisbon)

Research Interests

I am particularly interested in the following research topics:

  • mixed matrix hollow fibre membranes for carbon capture
  • composite biomaterials with enhanced biocompatibility and mechanical strength
  • rheology and fluid flow of suspensions and polymer solutions
