Sónia Carabineiro graduated in Applied Chemistry (branch of Biotechnology) at the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the New University of Lisbon, Portugal (FCT-UNL) and obtained her Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering (Catalysis) in 2001 at the same University. In 2000 she was an Invited Researcher at Leiden University, The Netherlands, and Post Doctoral Researcher from 2001 to 2003 at the same University. In 2004 she got a Post Doc grant at the Centre of Structural Chemistry of the Technical University of Lisbon (CQE-IST). In 2007 she joined the Laboratory of Catalysis and Materials (LCM), part of Associate Laboratory LSRE-LCM, at the Department of Chemical Engineering (DEQ) of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP), as an Assistant Researcher, with a Ciencia 2007 grant from Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT). In 2013 she became a Principal Researcher (Investigador FCT grant) at the same lab. Her research work deals mostly with catalysis by gold nanoparticles, mixed metal oxides and nanostructured carbon materials for oxidation reactions, degradation and adsorption of air and water pollutants. More recently, she has been working in collaboration with the CQE-IST on the heterogenisation of homogenous (soluble) metal complex catalysts. She has also collaborations with other Universities of Portugal and abroad. She is currently the female reviewer in the world with more revisions done.
Research Interests Catalysis by gold Mixed metal oxides Nanostructured carbon materials Oxidation reactions (carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, alkanes, alcohols) Heterogenisation of homogeneous catalysts Catalytic carbon gasification
João Manuel R.S. Tavares is graduated in Mechanical Engineering from University of Porto, Portugal (1992). In 1995, he obtained a M.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering, in the field of Industrial Informatics, also at University of Porto. In 2001, he obtained a Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the same University, and in 2015 the Habilitation in Mechanical Engineering.
From 1995 to 2000, he was researcher at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (INEB). Since 2001, he has been senior researcher and project coordinator at the Laboratory of Optical and Experimental Mechanics (LOME) of the Institute of Science and Innovation in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (INEGI).
He was Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering (DEMec) of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) between 2001 and 2011, and since then he has been Associate Professor in the same department.
Since 2001, he has been supervisor and co-supervisor of several M.Sc. and Ph.D. thesis and post-doc projects. He is co-author of more than 550 articles in national and international journals and conferences and co-editor of 30 international books and guest-editor of several special issues of international journals. Also, he has been evolved in several research projects, both as researcher and as scientific coordinator.
He has been co-chairman of various international conferences, including ICCEBS 2013, CMBBE 2015, CompIMAGE 2006/2010/2012/2014/2016, VipIMAGE 2007/2009/2011/2013/2015/2017, EUROMEDIA 2008, BioDENTAL 2009/2012/2014, 2016, IMAGAPP 2009 and TMSi 2010, and of numerous mini-symposia, workshops and thematic sessions, and a member of organizing and scientific committees of several national and international conferences.
He has been a member of several national and international journal editorial boards and Editor-in-Chief of the T&F journal “Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering: Imaging & Visualization” and Co-editor of the Springer book series “Lecture Notes in Computational Vision and Biomechanics”.
His main research areas include computational vision, computational mechanics, scientific visualization, human-computer interaction and new product development.

Marco G. Alves was conferred his LSc degree in Biology in 2005 and a PhD degree in Biochemistry, specialty of bioenergetics in 2011. Then, Marco G. Alves started to work on male reproductive biology, metabolic modulation, apoptosis and physio-pathological causes of subfertility or infertility. His main line of research is based on metabolic regulation of spermatogenesis, metabolic-related diseases and mechanisms responsible for such phenomena. He is team member of Several grants, and PI of one.

I'm a postdoctoral researcher. My interests are ranging from soil contamination by potentially toxic elements and microplastics.
I'm author/co-author of 15 articles in SCI journals (121 citations and h index of 7), five book chapters and 23 communications to national and international conferences.
I participated in two local and regional projects and a spanish national project about soil remediation with nanoparticles.
Also, I'm Principal Investigator in an project with microplastics and their impact in terrestrial ecosystems and researcher in a project of soil remediation by nanoparticles. Both projects are funding by CNRS (France).
Finally, I achieved the Certification to become "Assistant Professor" (Profesor Ayudante Doctor") (february 2017) and "Associate Professor" (Profesor de Universidad Privada and Profesor Contratado Doctor") (december 2017).
