Ana Rita Lado Ribeiro (ARLR) has significant expertise in Analytical Chemistry and Environmental Science and Engineering. After the PhD completion, ARLR was Postdoctoral researcher (2014-18) at LSRE-LCM (FEUP) and visiting researcher at Loughborough University, UK (2018). Currently, she holds a Doctoral Researcher position at LSRE-LCM and she is Associate Editor and Special Issues Editor of Chemical Engineering Journal Advances (Elsevier).
ARLR co-authored ca. 200 publications, including 7 chapters in books or in book series with peer review, more than 65 publications in international peer reviewed ISI indexed journals, and more than 100 communications in conference proceedings, having a h-index of 28. She is co-editor of 5 special issues of international scientific journals, and co-inventor of 2 patent applications. ARLR recently received the Scientific Recognition Award 2019 granted by FEUP.
ARLR initiated the research line Analytical Tools for Environmental Monitoring within the Research Group Catalysis and Carbon Materials at LSRE-LCM. She is Principal Investigator (PI) of a FCT funded project (SAMPREP) at LSRE-LCM, aiming the development of innovative sample preparation techniques for determination of micropollutants in the environment by using LC-MS/MS. Moreover, she is the PI at FEUP of another FCT funded project (ENANTIOTOX) and has participated as team member in ca. 20 research projects.
She is substitute member of the Management Committee of the COST Action CA18225 ‘Taste and Odor in early diagnosis of source and drinking Water Problems’; Seed Group member of the Water JPI Knowledge Hub dedicated to the UN Sustainable Development Goals - Water4SDGs KH; and member of the Core Team and Co-coordinator of the ECIs (Cell) of the COST Action CA17133 ‘Implementing nature-based solutions for creating a resourceful circular city’. Moreover, she has been member of various societies in the field of chemistry and environmental sciences, namely IWA, ACS, EFB, SPQ, and EuChemS-DAC Sample Preparation Study Group and Network.
