Margarida Brito graduated in Chemical Engineering from the University of Porto in June 2016. She integrated the LSRE-LCM research team in September 2016, as a project researcher. In February 2017, she started her PhD in Chemical and Biological Engineering. In the scope of her PhD, she was at the University of Manchester in 2018 for four months studying mixing of high viscous fluids in non-inertial regimes. In 2021, she got her PhD degree with the thesis entitled "Mixing Mechanisms in 2D Reactors”. Her work focused on the fundamental study of the flow and mixing dynamics in laminar chaotic flows using both Computational Fluid Dynamics simulations (CFD) and laser flow characterisation techniques (Planar Laser-Induced Fluorescence, PLIF). She pursued her PostDoc studies at LEPABE in the project HyGreen&LowEmissions (NORTE-01-0145- FEDER-000077). From September 2022 to January 2023, Margarida was at Laboratoire Génie Chimique (LGC-INP) in Toulouse, studying experimentally the mechanisms that control the particle suspensions in continuous oscillatory flow reactors. Currently, she is a junior contract researcher of the BioShoes4All project (PRR - 000011) at LSRE-LCM.
