Maria do Carmo Pereira

Maria do Carmo Pereira completed the PhD in Chemical Engineering in 1998 at the Universidade do Porto, Faculdade de Engenharia, and a graduation in Chemical Engineering in 1993 at Universidade do Porto, Faculdade de Engenharia, Portugal. She is Assistant Professor at Universidade do Porto, Faculdade de Engenharia and the Group Leader of Supramolecular Assemblies at the Laboratory for Process Engineering, Environment, Biotechnology and Energy (LEPABE). The main research areas that she is working are: i) Nanotechnology and interfacial phenomena; supramolecular interactions including novel nano-engineered biomaterials for therapeutic applications; development of nanostructured electrochemical immunosensors for detection of neurodegenerative diseases; and environment (air quality and atmospheric pollution with emphasis on public and environmental health).
