Renata Alexandra Alves Gomes Ferreira is an Invited Adjunct Professor of Polytechnic University of Beja, School of Agriculture, Department of Technology and Applied Sciences. She completed her PhD in Environmental Engineering at Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, on "Phytoremediation of soils contaminated with organic pollutants", in 2014. She co-supervised 3 MSc dissertations, supervised 1 work of course completion of LSc/BSc and co-supervised 3. She participated as Post-doc Fellow in 1 project, Research Fellow in 2 projects and Researcher in 3 projects. She organized 2 events. Currently, she is co-coordinator of Eco-Escolas Programme of the School of Agriculture, Polytechnic Institute of Beja. She was a member of the scientific committee of CERENA (Centro de Recursos Naturais e Ambiente) during 2016-Jan 2024. She works in the areas of: (a) Engineering and Technology with emphasis on Environmental Engineering and on Environmental Biotechnology; (b) Natural Sciences with emphasis on Biological Sciences (Plant Sciences, Molecular Biology and Biochemistry) and on Earth and Environmental Sciences (Environmental Sciences). Her main research work addresses the study of phytoremediation of contaminated water and soil with organic and inorganic pollutants (in natural systems and in constructed wetlands), focus on the plant role (e.g., oxidative stress response and detoxification, photosynthetic system, secondary metabolism) and on the organic compounds phytodegradation mechanisms. In the area, she published 18 articles in peer-reviewed journals and presented her work in several International Conferences, Meetings and Symposiums.
