Inês Pimentel Moreira

Inês Pimentel Moreira

Post-Doctoral Research Fellow

Inês is a postdoctoral researcher working within the SCENT project, more particularly in the study and development of different biopolymer-based gels to be used in an array of different sensors for enhanced gas sensing. She combines experimental techniques with coarse-grained molecular dynamics in order to get a deeper understanding of the systems.Holding an MSc in Bioengineering - Biological Engineering and a PhD in Chemistry, she has experience in biopolymers, enzymes, self-assembled systems and emulsions.

About me

I’ve always been interested and curious about how the little molecules in our body work in symphony in order for us live. Biotechnology not only teaches me about that whole World, but it also allows me to use that knowledge to apply in biological and artificial methods. With these methods, I hope to help the environment and the people with all sorts of problems.
