Ana Marques graduated in Environmental Engineering in 2001 and has been involved in research since 2000, when she was a researcher at DTU. Since 2002 she has been working at CBQF in the remediation of disturbed soils using plant-based technologies and in the same year was awarded a FCT PhD grant (2002-2007). The importance and quality of her work is reflected in the following indicators: cited 620 times with an h-index of 14, participation in several funded projects, being the PI in two of them.
