Lucília S. Ribeiro graduated in Chemical Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) in 2012 and received the Merit award for the highest classification from FEUP and the Engenheiro Cristiano Spratley award. In 2013, Lucília S. Ribeiro started the Doctoral Program in Chemical and Biological Engineering in the Department of Chemical Engineering at FEUP with a Ph.D. grant financed by Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT). From September 2014 to February 2015 she was assistant professor (at 12.5%) of the subject Reaction Engineering I of the 3rd year of the Integrated Master in Chemical Engineering at FEUP. In 2016, she has also co-supervised the dissertation of a student of the Integrated Master in Chemical Engineering, in the area of biomass valorization into value-added chemicals. In February 2017, she completed her Ph.D. degree in the area of catalytic conversion of biomass by hydrolytic hydrogenation, under the supervision of Dr. Manuel Fernando R. Pereira and Dr. José J. M. Órfão. Lucília S. Ribeiro was distinguished with the Portuguese Young Chemists Award for the best Ph.D. thesis (Young Chemists Group, Portuguese Chemical Society) and also with the Best Ph.D. Thesis in Catalysis – Ramôa Ribeiro Award (Division of Catalysis and Porous Materials, Portuguese Chemical Society). Since March 2017 she is working as a post-doctoral researcher at the same institution (Associate Laboratory LSRE-LCM), in the area of synthesis of fine chemical products with high-value from the catalytic conversion lignocellulosic biomass.
