Research interests

Area: Analytical Chemistry and Chemical Sensors

The research has been centered on the development of sensors and analytical systems to be applied to the fields of environmental monitoring (air and water), quality control of pharmaceutical drugs, food and drinks, as well as analysis of exhaled air to detect health problems.
Sensors have also been used to detect phase transactions, biodiesel pour point, HPMC gelation and starch gelatinization.
More fundamental work is linked to the understanding of the phenomena responsible for the response obtained with sensors based on piezoelectric quartz crystals and of the interaction between the analyte and the recognition film.

Brief CV

After a degreee in Chemical Engineering at the University of Coimbra (1983), she became a teacher assistent.  In 1989  she presented the lesson "Stochastic Methods in the simulation of experiments in chemical kinetics" and a scientific review on " quantitative analysis by mass spectrometry"  for  a public evaluation of pedagogical and scientific capabilities. In 1997 she obtained a PhD in Chemistry with the thesis "Development of sensors based on piezolectric quartz crystals for CO2 and SO2 ". This work marked the begining of the development of chemical sensors at the Chemistry Department, which became, since then,  her major field of research.  At the present, she is a member of the permanent comitee of the sensors forum IBERSENSOR and is a vowel of the centre regional college of Chemical and biological engineer of the Ordem dos Engenheiros
