Filipe Miguel Jesus Figueiredo is graduated in Chemical Engineering from IST (UL) in 2016. His MSc thesis work was "Estudos de Reactividade do Fármaco Antiplaquetário Clopidogrel" ("Antiplatelet Drug Clopidogrel Reactivity Studies"). The main goal was to find evidence of toxic pathways by observing covalent adducts of its metabolites with common bionucleofiles. This work provided a solid formation on organic chemistry (focusing on the oxidation of thienopyridines and laboratory synthesis) and analytical chemistry (ESI-MS, NMR, HPLC and molecular electronic spectroscopy). This has led him to be an independent user of these techniques. He was part of the Honour Roll twice. Currently, he is a PhD student in Chemical Engineering at IST (UL), intending to discover greener routes for the recovery of rare earth elements (REE) from WEEE, and a researcher in the national project RecValTR at IST (UL), which is connected with the Portuguese industry, aiming to build a hydrometallurgical pilot plant unit to recover REE. His scientific interests include REE chemistry, metal extraction, modelling of biphasic processes, waste valorisation, scaling-up of chemical operations and chemical engineering project. His commitment to research has recently led him also to be fully autonomous with energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometers, which already conduced him to be a contributing author to one scientific article and a poster at an international conference. He participated in twelve activities, including one course and six short trainings on analytical techniques and methodologies, several workshops, namely about teaching STEM and producing scientific documents. He also made part of one meeting designed to divulge science to public. He is very responsible, autonomous, flexible and capable of managing the internal affairs of the laboratory. Personally, Filipe is also highly motivated to help the environment, to understand natural processes and to transfer scientific knowledge.
