Simão Pedro Pinho graduated in Chemical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) in 1992. That same year, he started the research studies in the Department of Chemical Engineering from University of Porto, where in 2000 he obtained the degree of Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering. In 1995 he started his professional career as a lecturer at the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança (IPB), where he is now Coordinator Professor and permanent member of the Associate Laboratory LSRE-LCM. At IPB he has been enrolled in management activities such as coordinator of the Chemical and Biological Technology Department, President of the Assembly of Representatives and Vice President of the Scientific Council at the School of Technology and Management.
