Carlos Miguel Henriques Ferreira

PhD in 2019 in Environmental Engineering, MSc in Environmental Contamination and Toxicology and BSc in Biochemistry.

Currently researcher at ALCHEMY project working in the extraction, purification and valorization of by-products.

Has worked in the bacterial biotechnological production of study compounds, analytical and inorganic characterization of study compounds, and application of study compounds and study of consequent effects in Fe-deficient soybean plants. Has also worked in an endocrine disruptor-monitoring project in Douro River and Porto coastal and in the development of biomarker for endocrine disruptor exposure as well in international project communication and outreach management.

Has experience in waste valorization, chemical (metal) speciation, metal biochemistry, food and soil dynamics and statistical analysis.
