Research and Professional Experience

Sep. 2009- (Current) Post-Doctoral Researcher

CEBAL - Centre of agronomic and Agro-Industrial biotechnology of Alentejo, Beja Portugal
Coordinator of the biomass valorization for bioethanol production. In the focus: enzymatic hydrolysis of lignocellulosic biomass and second generation ethanol production. Biomass tested: Extracted olive pomace,  cardoon( Cynara cardunculus) and rockrose (Cistus ladanifer). Analytical methods with HPLC and photometric assays. Use of nanofiltration technology in separation of inhibitory compounds from liquors of autohydrolysis.
