Paula Castro

Full Professor

Generic Bio

PhD in Biochemical Engineering from University College London (1994), she began her higher education at the Catholic University of Portugal, having graduated in Food Engineering (1989). She is a Full Professor at the Escola Superior de Biotecnologia of which she is currently also the Director.

She is responsible for disciplines in the areas of bioengineering and microbiology, with a special focus on technology and sustainability. Her research interests focus on environmental biotechnology, crossing different areas, from agri-food to health and well-being, in topics such as the biodegradation of pollutants, technologies for the treatment and recovery of wastewater and industrial by-products, phytoremediation, and the development of bioinoculants for the agroforestry sector.
