Dr. Alice Ferreira


Natural from the Azores islands, Alice Ferreira came to Lisbon in 2011 to study Biological Engineering at Instituto Superior Técnico. Throughout the course she developed a special interest in microalgae biotechnology, which resulted in her doing her Master Thesis in “CO2-supplemented brewery wastewater treatment by microalgae and biomass upgrading for bioenergy production” at Laboratório Nacional de Energia e Geologia (LNEG). Currently she is working as a research fellow at LNEG in Project ERANETLAC/0001/2014  “GREENBIOREFINERY – Processing of brewery wastes with microalgae for producing valuable compounds”.
