Raquel Viveiros got her PhD in Sustainable Chemistry in a close collaboration between Universidade NOVA de Lisboa and a pharmaceutical company, HOVIONE. She is developing work in the area (s) of Engineering Sciences and Technologies with an emphasis on Chemical Engineering in particular in Chemical Process Engineering, using clean and environmentally-friendly technologies, namely the use of green solvents, such as supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2). on the development of affinity devices produced using scCO2, for different applications, such as controlled release of drugs, fluorescent sensors, extraction of added value compounds from natural matrices and separation of contaminants diesel and aqueous samples from the environment.
