Professor Rosa Maria Quinta-Ferreira
Rosa Maria Quinta-Ferreira
University of Coimbra, Portugal
Rosa Maria de Oliveira Quinta Ferreira, name for scientific publications Rosa M. Quinta-Ferreira, was born in 1952, graduated in Chemical Engineering at the University of Coimbra, Portugal, in 1975, received the DEA - Diplome d´Études Approffondies - from the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France, in 1981 and the PhD degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Porto, Portugal, in 1988 and had the Aggregation degree in 2015. Full Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Coimbra since 2018 and Coordinator of the Group on Environment, Reaction, Separation and Thermodynamics (GERST) of the Chemical Processes Engineering and Forest Products Research Centre (CIEPQPF) of the University of Coimbra. Published 143 papers in specialized scientific journals with ca. 1800 citations, 15 chapters of books and 210 communications to scientific meetings. Supervised 11 PhD thesis, 34 Master thsesis and co-supervised 3 besides the supervison of 91 final scientific dissertations for graduation in chemical engineering in the pre-Bologna period (equivalent to the actual master thesis). Principal investigator of 9 financed projects by the Research National Foundation (FCT) and researcher in 6 other national projects. As coordinator of the UC team, integrated a transnational bilateral cooperation project, was member of the team of an EU FP6 project and an EU FP7 project and is member of a POCTEP Portugal-Spain project. The general research specialization domain is Reaction Engineering, including computational modeling, through phenomenological models and advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) frameworks, as well as experimental work dedicated to the environmental preservation from polluted liquid, gas and solid wastes. In particular, Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) for liquid effluents treatment have been developed under the common denominator of heterogeneous catalysis, including wet oxidation, ozonation, Fenton´s, photo-assisted systems and electrochemical processes. Spin-off companies were created from her research group with the support of the research carried out in her laboratorial facilities. Advanced Biotechnology Processes embrace novel solutions for environment safeguarding. For VOCs decontamination, autothermal systems are investigated, whereas fly ashes recycling and composting methodologies are targeted as solid wastes valorization. Chemical, Environment and Biotechnology Reaction Engineering are joint domains to search sound environmental technologies for the planet remediation. Health concerns about the effect of biological and chemical contaminants on public welfare are reinforced within multidisciplinary pharmaceutical, biophysics and medical sciences areas.
