Researcher

Researcher IDA-2753-2009
Ciência ID5B13-FFD4-20E2
Born and educated in Bulgaria. Holds a Dipl. Eng. degree in Biotechnology (1987) and PhD degrees in Chemistry (1993) and (Bio)Chemical Engineering (2003). Has research experience in Bulgaria, Germany, Denmark and, since 1999, in Portugal. In 2002, was appointed as a full-time Invited Professor at Faculty of Science and Technology, New University of Lisbon, to teach various courses for (Bio)Chemical Engineering Master students. Since 2004, is LAQV Researcher. Since 2012, teaches Membrane Engineering. So far, has authored 111 peer-reviewed articles (Scopus, H-index of 35). He is included in the prestigious "World's Top 2% of Scientists" for their career-long impact list, published by Stanford University. His current research is focused on developing eco-friendly and sustainable membrane-based processes for various applications in the water-food-energy nexus.
