Short CV

Luciana (born 1979) graduated in Chemistry at the University of Coimbra in 2002. In 2007 she completed a PhD degree in Chemical Thermodynamics at the University of Coimbra. In the first half of 2008 Luciana worked as a scholarship investigator at the University of Aveiro. Since 2008 she is a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Aveiro, under the supervision of Prof. João A. P. Coutinho.
Since 2005 Luciana Tomé published 18 papers in diverse and multidisciplinary international peer review journals such as J. Phys. Chem. A and B, J. Molec. Struct.:THEOCHEM, Carbohydr. Res., Sep. Pur. Technol, J. Chem. Thermodyn., among others, having over 210 citations (without self-citations), an h-index of 9 and an average number of citations of 13.3.

Scientific Interests

Luciana has been developing a very significant research on the molecular mechanisms that control the behavior of biocompounds in aqueous solutions.

Since 2008, she has been active in this area and has successfully applied thermodynamics, spectroscopic and computational methods to the study of the interactions occurring in several relevant (bio)chemical systems. That work has enabled noticeable progresses as far as the understanding of the molecular mechanisms that govern the behavior of biological systems are concerned and have provided important contributions to this field.
