M. Teresa A. Reis
Assistant Professor at the Chemical Engineering Department of Instituto Superior Técnico (Universidade de Lisboa). In 2000, she obtained the Ph.D. with the thesis "Zinc extraction by Emulsion Liquid Membranes”. Her research interest is in the area of separation processes and effluents treatment. The work done has been related to the use of conventional liquid-liquid extraction and liquid membranes techniques, like non-dispersive solvent extraction and pseudo-emulsion hollow fibre strip dispersion technique for the removal/recovery of organic solutes and heavy metals from acidic solutions.
