Mirtha Alejandra de Oliveira Lourenço is a Junior Researcher at the Department of Chemistry, University of Aveiro and CICECO-Aveiro Institute of Materials. She holds a degree in Chemistry and a Master in Chemistry in the field of Chemical and Industrial Processes from the University of Coimbra. In 2016, she obtained her Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering at University of Aveiro under the supervision of Dr. P. Ferreira and Dr. J.R.B. Gomes developing new functionalized periodic mesoporous organosilicas for different adsorption applications and catalysis, and computational studies of the adsorption of molecules at interfaces. In 2018, she started to work as postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. C.F. Pirri at Istituto Italiano di Technologia (IIT) - Center for Sustainable Future Technologies (CSFT, Italy) designing new carbon based-materials for environmental applications, such as gas adsorption/separation and catalytic CO2 reduction. Since 2021 she has been a Researcher at the University of Aveiro, focusing on the synthesis and structural elucidation of functionalized porous silicas towards CO2 adsorption-separation under the EU-funded NMR4CO2 project, led by L. Mafra.
