Débora Andreia Campelo Campos


Post-Doc in Biotechnology at the Escola Superior de Biotecnologia, Universidade Católica Portuguesa (ESB-UCP). Débora has a scientific career with over 10 years of experience: i) search of natural antimicrobials; ii) development of novel and green extraction methods; iii) development and characterization of lipid nanocarriers; iv) industrial process development and scale up; v) knowledge transfer to industry.

She began her professional path as fellow researcher at CBQF in the ESB-UCP and thereafter, progressed to her PhD (ended at 2019) and recent post-doc in the area of development of novel technologies for industrial implementation. While working as researcher at CBQF, she started to be involved in entrepreneur activities and programs, since 2016. In 2017, developed AgroGrIN Tech project to efficiently manage the fruit waste produced within companies. She also worked as junior researcher at AZTI a technological centre and knowledge transfer centre, developing business models, within a European project – SmartChain2020.
