Cláudio Rocha got his MSc in Chemical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto in July 2016. He completed his Ph.D. degree in Chemical and Biological Engineering from FEUP with the thesis entitled Olive mill wastewater valorization through steam reforming reaction using a hybrid sorption-enhanced membrane reactor for high-purity hydrogen production, at LEPABE, FEUP, in September 2021. Since October 2021, she has been working as a postdoctoral researcher at the LSRE-LCM, FEUP, on the ProjectHyGreen&LowEmissions  Tackling Climate Change Impacts: the role of Green Hydrogen production, storage and use.

Cláudio Rocha has published 7 papers in international peer-reviewed journals and has also several oral and poster communications in international conferences. Besides that, he is one of the editors of the Book of Abstracts of the 4th Symposium on Chemical and Biological Engineering.

His research is focused on the valorization of the Olive Oil Mill Wastewater (and other pollutants streams) through the Steam Reforming Reaction in hybrid multifunctional reactors.
