JCM Pires graduated in Chemical Engineering by the Faculty of Engineering of Porto University (FEUP) in 2004 with a final classification of 16. He worked in two chemical companies and then started his PhD in Environmental Engineering in 2006 at FEUP. From 2010 to 2016, he was a postdoctoral researcher in the area of environmental applications of microalgal cultures (CO2 capture, wastewater treatment and biofuel production). He has also participated in a research project to define methodologies to assess the sustainability of chemical processes. From 2017, he is an assistant researcher from Investigator FCT programme. More recently, he was an Invited Assistant Professor at FEUP and the Faculty of Engineering of Agostinho Neto University (FEUAN, Angola). His teaching activity comprises several multidisciplinary topics, such as Project of Engineering for three different master courses, Air Pollution, among others. JCM Pires received a merit scholarship from the University of Porto for his highest grade in Chemical Engineering in 2003 and the best student prize in 2005. To support his research activity, he was awarded by 3 FCT fellowships. One of his research papers was ranked in ScienceDirect Top25 Hottest Articles of the journal Chem. Eng. Res. Des. and was considered as the Top Cited Paper for 2011 and 2012. He was on the list of the world's most cited scientists released by Stanford University in 2020 and 2021. Due to the scientific outputs, he received the Scientific Recognition Award at 2019 and 2021 FEUP Day. JCM Pires is an integrated member of LEPABE-FEUP. Concerning research projects, he is the principal investigator of five research projects: (i) FCT Investigator Grant (2017-2021); (ii) PIV4Algae (2018-2022); (iii) Power2Biofuel (2021-2022); (iv) Environmental Management at IMPETUS (2021-2022); and (v) PhotoBioValue (2022-2024) . He was also involved in other research projects. JCM Pires published 66 papers (21 as first author, 3 as a single author; 34 as the corresponding author; 25 as senior/last author; 40 papers were published independently from his PhD supervisor) in international peer-reviewed journals with an accumulated 5-year impact factor of 423 and with 3287 citations (h-index=28). JCM Pires published 6 books and 25 book chapters (3 as single author), and his research work was discussed in 48 international meetings and 3 national meetings (he gave 6 oral and 12 poster presentations). Since completion of PhD degree, JCM Pires was the reviewer of more than 340 papers for international journals, including Chemical Reviews (impact factor - IF 52.76), Nature Communications (IF 12.12) and Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews (IF 12.11). His work was recognised by several international journals. He is an editorial board member of Bioengineering and Biotechnology (Frontiers), Applied Sciences, Energies, Sustainability (MDPI) and The Open Microalgae Biotechnology (Bentham). JCM Pires completed the supervision of 3 postdoctoral researchers, 1 PhD student (5 ongoing), 14 master students (1 ongoing) and 9 research fellows. Concerning established international collaborations, he worked in the Institute of Chemical Technology (Czech Republic) for 5 months. Since 2015, he has developed research studies with the University of Seville and Joint Research Centre (Spain) regarding air quality characterisation and modelling. In FEUAN (Angola), he supervised two research studies for two years. In Federal University of Santa Catarina (Brasil), he co-supervised a PhD student for one year, regarding wastewater treatment with microalgae. He also established collaborations with researchers in Portugal (LSRE/LCM, CEFT, among others) and abroad (Univ. of Cambridge - UK, Univ. of Rio de Janeiro - Brazil, National Central University ¿ Taiwan, among others), resulting in 30 papers and 20 presentations in international conference
