Teresa Oliveira is currently a research fellow in the Nanodevices research group at INL. Her research is focused on the development of lipid and polymer-based nanoparticles for application in gene delivery.
Teresa holds a degree (2013) and a master (2016) in Chemistry from the Faculty of Science of the University of Porto. During her graduation, she worked with liposomes and proteoliposomes as mimetic structures of bacteria and ATR-FTIR spectroscopy. In her master’s degree, she did potentiometric quantification of the interaction between heavy metals and compounds of marine origin. Currently, she is finishing a PhD in Chemistry from a joint programme between the University of Minho and the University of Vigo, in which she has worked with different types of nanomaterials, from inorganic hybrid nanoreactors to lipid-based nanostructures, such as liposomes, cubosomes and lipoplexes, assembled in bulk and microfluidics.
