Juliana Sousa

Ph.D Student
Nanochemistry 

Juliana joined INL in 2015 and is currently working on the development of adsorption technologies for the recovery of metal ions from industrial wastewater. She did her PhD in the field of heterogeneous catalysis, working on the preparation and characterization of carbon materials for environmental catalysis at the Associated Laboratory LSRE/LCM group at the Faculty of Engineering in Porto University. After her PhD, she joined the Functional Materials & Solutions team at Centre for Nanotechnology and Smart Materials, and gained strong experience in various scientific fields, such as synthesis and functionalization of inorganic materials and their incorporation onto several substrates, and the development of polymer coatings for automotive and construction industries.
