PhD Student

Liane Meneses was born in 1993 in Terceira island, Azores. She graduated in Biomedical Sciences by Universidade de Aveiro in 2015 and obtained her MSc in Biotechnology by Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologias of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa in 2017. Her master thesis was developed under the supervision of Doctor Alexandre Paiva and Doctor Filomena Freitas and was entitled “Evaluation of sub-, supercritical fluids as solvents for extraction and impregnation of polyhydroxyalkanoates”. Currently she is working with menthol based Deep Eutectic Solvents for the enzymatic kinetic resolution of racemic menthol. Her research interests involve alternative solvents, such as supercritical solvents and deep eutectic solvents, and alternative materials, such as biopolymers derived from biomass.
