Carla Orge graduated in Chemical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) in 2008. In 2007/08, she participated on a research project for pre-graduated students on the theme Catalytic Ozonation of Organic Pollutants Using Metalloporphyrin Complexes Anchored on Mesoporous Carbons. The dissertation thesis for end of course project was about Development of Novel Mesoporous Carbon Materials for the Catalytic Ozonation of Organic Pollutants. In 2009 she started the Doctoral Program in Chemical and Biological Engineering in Department of Chemical Engineering at FEUP with a Ph.D. grant financed by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT). In 2012 she obtained her degree of Ph.D. in the area of Tertiary Treatment of Effluents by Catalytic Ozonation. In April 2013, she started her Post-Doc Grant funded by FCT in LSRE-LCM in the scientific domain of Environmental Engineering under the supervision of Professor Fernando Pereira and Professor Joaquim Faria. Since September 2018 she was selected for a Junior Research position for developing activities in Photocatalytic Ozonation for Micropollutants Abatement in Water and Wastewater.
Carla Orge is currently a team leader of a research project entitled as InTreat supported by FCT. She is co-authored of around 50 publications, including ISI indexed papers (13 as first author) and communications in conference proceedings.
