Mónica Loureiro

Research Fellow



Mónica Loureiro is pursuing her Ph.D. studies in Materials Engineering at IST on the topic “Customized microcapsules for autoreactive and monocomponent adhesives” under the supervision of Prof. Ana C. Marques and Prof. João Bordado. She obtained her Masters’ degree in Technological Chemistry in 2016 with the thesis “Test and Development of Microcapsules for Rigid Polyurethane Foam” and graduated in Biochemistry in 2013, both at Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (FCUL). Her main scientific research area is the synthesis of scaffolds and microcapsules through the Sol-Gel technique with both inorganic and hybrid compositions, in the framework of the Technological Platform on Microencapsulation and Immobilization. Currently she is a researcher at IST, at the Chemical Engineering Department (CERENA group).
