Personal profile


My research spans the field of environmental chemistry, water quality, water technology and management, and broader approaches to the circular use of resources.
I make use of analytical tools to characterize pollutants in water and related matrices, also to develop water treatment technology, namely nature-based solutions, novel fixed biofilm reactors and bioelectrochemical systems.

Cooperation and dissemination

Co-chair of the International Water Association Specialist Group on Wetland Systems for Water Pollution Control. Collaborating with more than 20 international partners in different national and european projects. Member of the COST Action Phoenix focused on bioremediation and bioeletrochemical systems.
