Short CV

Filipe H. B. Sosa is currently a Junior Researcher at CICECO - Aveiro Institute of Material, hired under Project GRETE - Green chemicals and technologies for the wood-to-textile value chain (call H2020-BBI-JTI-2018). In 2015 he received a BSc degree in Chemical Engineering from the Regional University of Blumenau (FURB), Brazil and in 2017 he obtained his MSc degree in Chemical Engineering from the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR), Brazil. In March of 2021, he completed his PhD in Chemical Engineering conducted under the cotutelle agreement between the University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil, and the University of Aveiro (UA), Portugal. During the PhD, Filipe Sosa had additional trainees activities at Kemijski institut (National Institute of Chemistry), Slovenia under COST action - CA17128 (Establishment of a Pan-European Network on the Sustainable Valorisation of Lignin). There, he worked on the catalytic depolymerization, and conversion of lignin assisted by deep eutectic solvents and hydrodeoxygenation catalysis. Currently, the main goal of Filipe Sosa scientific investigation is the application of green solvents (ionic liquids and deep eutectic solvents) for biomass valorization. In addition, he also has experience in the determination of phase equilibrium (liquid-vapor equilibrium, liquid-liquid equilibrium, and solid-liquid equilibrium).
