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), visiting researcher at Loughborough University, UK (2018), and Doctoral researcher at LSRE-LCM between 2019 and January 2023. Currently, she holds an Auxiliary researcher position at LSRE-LCM, is Executive Editor of Chemical Engineering Sciences (Elsevier) and Special Issues Editor of Chemical Engineering Journal Advances (Elsevier).
ARLR has participated as team member in several research projects and recently she was awarded with a European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant (ERA-ARE, Project Ref. 101039270). She is Principal Investigator (PI) of a national financed project (STAR, Ref. 2022.02842.PTDC), FEUP PI of another national funded project (ENANTIOTOX) at LSRE-LCM, and was PI of a national funded project (SAMPREP, Ref. POCI-01-0145-FEDER-030521). Moreover, she is Member of the Management Committee (MC Substitute) of WaterTOP COST Action CA18225 (Taste and Odor in early diagnosis of source and drinking Water Problems).
ARLR co-authored more than 200 publications, including 8 chapters in books or in book series with peer review, more than 80 publications in international peer reviewed ISI indexed journals, and more than 100 communications in conference proceedings, having a h-index of 32.
