Ana Lourenço is a Forestry Engineer since 2003, has completed her Masters in Forest Engineering and Natural Re-sources in 2008 and a PhD in 2012 at the School of Agriculture, Technical University of Lisbon. She has been award-ed in 2014 with a postdoctoral fellowship by the Foundation for Science and Technology. Currently her research work is in the field of chemistry of lignocellulosic materials using a multi-analytical approach, e.g. GC/MS, Py-GC/MS, FTIR, NIR and NMR. Her focus is the complete integration of the resources and the development of bio-based products under the biorefinery concept, the circular economy and zero waste philosophy. To boost her knowledge and exchange experiences, she has been in four short-term missions (some under Cost Actions): IRNAS with Jose Carlos del Rio (Seville, 2014), INIA with Juan Carlos Villar (Madrid, 2015; COST FP1203), Aveiro with Dmitry Evtuguin (Aveiro, 2018, 2019), INRAE-FARE with Brigitte Chabbert (Reims, 2021; COST 17128). She is an integrated member of the Forest Research Center (CEF), belonging to the research group ForTec: Forest Products and Biorefineries. She is also a member of the Ibero-American Society for the Development of Biorefineries (SIADEB), the Red Iberoamericana de Docencia e Investigacíon en Celulosa y Papel (RIADICYP), the Portuguese Society of Forestry Sciences (SPCF) and the College of Chemistry of the University of Lisbon (CQUL). During the last years, she integrated the team of 18 R&D projects (13 national and five international). At this time, she has a total of 44 articles published in international journals with scientific referees (50% in Q1, 34% in Q2, 9% in Q3), three book chapters and 49 publications in proceedings (presented at international and national conferences). Therefore, she as a h-index of 17, with a number of citations of 850 (from 43 documents by author), according to Scopus Database (https://www.scopus.com/authid/detail.uri?authorId=36877743000). Until now, she was a reviewer for 17 scientific journals. Also, she collaborates in the teaching of Bachelor, Master and Doctoral degrees in ISA, and was supervisor of twoMaster Degree thesis, and is now supervisor of two Doctoral thesis.
