Ana Estrada (AE) graduated in Chemistry, with specialization in polymers, in 2002, at the University of Minho, receiving several awards for the best student in chemistry. In 2005, she concluded a MSc in Chemistry of Natural Products at University of Aveiro. Ana Estrada obtained her Ph.D. in Chemistry in 2010 from the University of Aveiro, acquiring knowledge and skills in the field of inorganic synthesis and homogeneous/ heterogeneous catalysis, supervised by Prof. Ana Cavaleiro (UA) and Graça Neves (UA). In 2013, she was awarded with a Post-doctoral fellowship in the group of Prof. Tito Trindade at CICECO - Aveiro Institute of Materials, developing new routes of synthesis and surface modification of inorganic nanoparticles of diverse materials for photocatalytic applications envisaging water remediation (6 years). Currently, Ana Estrada is researcher at CICECO/UA where she continues to strengthen her main scientific interests concern the development of nanostructured materials for application in water remediation. In particular, her research has been focused on novel synthetic routes for preparing semiconductor nanostructured materials with innovative and enhanced properties, aiming for the development of environmentally sustainable solar-driven photocatalysts for industrial water remediation. Overall, Ana Estrada published 19 original papers in SCI-indexed journals, plus 5 in preparation, has an h-index of 11 and more than 350 citations (Scopus, 03/03/2022). AE presented 48 posters and 14 oral communications. She is currently collaborating in the supervision of 3 Ph.D. students and supervising of one MSc and 3 BSc graduation students, and she has completed the supervision of 1 Ph.D. student and 5 MSc researchers and several undergraduate students. Since 2010 she has participated in 10 funded research national and international projects. In particular, she led one international FCT project aiming the development of a new generation of high-performance graphene-based photocatalysts for the removal of emerging pollutants from the wastewater treatment plants of the center region of Portugal (AdCL-Águas de Portugal) and one co-promotion project in collaboration with an industrial partner (The Navigator Company), focusing the development of novel materials and technologies for pulp and paper effluents treatment using the photocatalysis. She is regular reviewer of several international journals in chemistry and materials science and has been strongly involved in several teaching activities to graduation students. Along with her research activity, AE has been member of organizing committees and deeply involved in science outreach activities, delivering talks for schools and science exhibitions for dissemination of knowledge to the public.
