João Paulo Ferreira

Associate Professor

Ph.D. in Biochemical Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, J. P. Ferreira holds  a diploma in Chemical Engineering from University of Porto. He is assistant professor at the Faculty of Biotechnology of Universidade Católica Portiuguesa since 1993, and currently he is the main lecturer of 5 curricular units, at both BSc. and MSc. levels, teaching additionally in other units. He is coordinator of the MSc. program in Biomedical Engineering at ESB-UCP and of that same specialization of the BSc. degree in Bioengineering. In research, he develops projects in dairy science and technology, coffee technology, and other applied food science projects. He has also lead several projects on the biomedical field, such as in controlled release technology, production of recombinant antibodies, and applied protein chemistry.  His publications include several scientific articles in the above fields, as well as pedagogical articles in Biochemistry and in Thermodynamics; he is also the author of a textbook on Thermodynamics. Researcher at the Centre for Biotechnology and Fine Chemistry (CBQF).
