Short CV

Paula Soares Santos (born in 1972) obtained a first degree in chemistry (1996) followed by a master in chemistry (2001, organic chemistry, supervirors: Ana Campos and Manuela Raposo), at University of Minho, Portugal.

In 2005 Paula obtained her PhD in chemistry (inorganic chemistry, supervirors: Helena Nogueira and Tito Trindade) at University of Aveiro, Portugal. 
Since 2005 Paula has been a post-doctoral fellow at CICECO, (i) in science and materials engineering under supervison of Helena Nogueira and Luís Carlos, and (ii) in management of science and technology – NMR, since December, 2010, under supervision of João Rocha.

To date (september 3rd, 2013) Paula has published 26 SCI papers and another 2 in an international journal with referee, with more than 500 citations (h index 11), and presented several communications (oral and poster) in scientific meetings.
