Salomé Soares graduated in Chemical Engineering by Porto Superior Institute of Engineering in 2003. In 2006 she received the Master diploma in Environmental Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto and obtained the PhD diploma in Chemical and Biological Engineering at the same Faculty in December 2010. From 2011 to 2016 she was a Postdoctoral researcher at Associate Laboratory LSRE/LCM host by FEUP. Since July 2016, she is an auxiliary researcher of LSRE/LCM. From September 2010 to February 2014 she was tutorial assistant of the subject Algebra of the Integrated Master in Chemical Engineering. Since 2014 she has been lecturing in the Integrated Master in Environmental Engineering at FEUP. During her PhD and Postdoctoral period she visited the Universities of Alicante and Cadiz (Spain) to perform characterization of catalysts. Her background is in the field of Chemical and Environmental Engineering, focused on heterogeneous catalysis. Her current research focus is the development of novel nanostructured materials in powder form, for different applications (air and water treatment, energy conversion) and also of structured catalysts in the monolith form. She co-authored more than 220 publications, including 75 ISI indexed papers, 1 book chapters, 1 book of abstracts, 1 international patent, and more than 145 communications in conference proceedings. She was guest-editor of 2 special issues. She received a Prize from Fundação Eng. António Almeida for the best doctoral thesis of 2010 due their originality, high scientific merit and socio-economic potential and in 2017 she was awarded by FEUP with the Scientific Recognition Prize, among other prizes. She has been a team member of several National and European projects. She is regularly involved in the supervision of MSc and PhD students and fellow researchers, and in the organization of scientific conferences and other events for diffusion of science to the society.
