Ana Paula Mora Tavares

Assistant Researcher

A. Tavares graduated in Chemical Engineering at Estadual University of Rio de Janeiro in 1997 and completed a two-year MSc degree in Technology of Chemical and Biochemical Processes at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in 2000. A. Tavares completed her PhD in Chemical Engineering at University of Aveiro, Portugal, in 2006. In 2007, A. Tavares received an Honourable Mention from the “Companhia União Fabril” (Portugal) for the scientific standards of her PhD thesis. From 2006-2009, Tavares was post-doctoral fellow at LSRE/FEUP, Portugal. In 2009 she started her independent career LSRE/FEUP under the program “Ciência 2008”. From September 2008 to June 2014 she had been teaching tutorial classes of Fundamentals of Chemistry at FEUP. From July 2014 to October 2015 A. Tavares was a post-doctoral fellow integrated in an European Research Council Grant (ERC-2013-StG-337753). She gives laboratory classes of Microbial Biotechnology at University of Aveiro. Since July 2017 A. Tavares is Auxiliary Researcher at CICECO-Aveiro Institute of Materials.

A. Tavares is participating in the COHITEC training program in technology commercialization. This program supports the valorization of the knowledge produced at Portuguese R&D institutions. The program has two main objectives: i) assessing the commercial viability of the products or services that can be obtained from the science / technology proposed by participant researchers ; ii) inducing entrepreneurial and technology commercialization skills in the participants.

Her research scientific interests include proteins, antibodies, enzymes, ionic liquids, biomolecules purification, aqueous biphasic systems for the extraction of proteins ans enzymes. fermentation, enzyme production, enzyme immobilization, nanomaterials, biocatalysis for organic synthesis and enzymatic reactions.
