Małgorzata E. Zakrzewska

Post-doctoral Researcher

Małgorzata E. Zakrzewska has two MSc degrees, in Environmental Protection Technology (2007) and Biotechnology (2008), from the Gdańsk University of Technology, Poland, and a PhD degree in Sustainable Chemistry (2016) from the NOVA School of Science and Technology, Portugal. After her PhD studies, she was granted two postdoctoral fellowships, to be subsequently contracted at the Centro de Química Estrutural (CQE), Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, and currently, at the Associated Laboratory for Green Chemistry (LAQV) of the Network of Chemistry and Technology (REQUIMTE), at NOVA School of Science and Technology, Portugal. Over the years, she has participated in seven national and one European project, and currently, she is the Principal Investigator of an exploratory project in Chemical Engineering field, funded by the Portuguese National Funding Agency for Science, Research and Technology (Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia), through the national call for R&D Projects in All Scientific Domains. M.E. Zakrzewska’s research focuses on green chemistry, through application of alternative solvents (supercritical CO2, ionic liquids, deep eutectic systems) for a sustainable production of goods, preferably from renewable resources, including CO2 utilisation. She has significant expertise in supercritical technology (batch/continuous flow processes, reaction-separation integration/intensification) and high-pressure phase behaviour studies, with the emphasis on its influence on reaction kinetics.
