Research interests

E. Oliveira graduated, in 2006, in Applied Chemistry from FCT- Nova University Lisbon, Portugal, in 2007 obtained a master’s in biotechnology and completed a PhD degree in Biotechnology in 2010, at the same University. In 2013, she obtained a second PhD degree in Food Science and Technology, from the Science Faculty of Ourense Campus at the University of Vigo, Spain. Currently, she is an assistant researcher and the Head of the Laboratory for Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles preparation, Imaging and Drug Delivery at NOVA-ST, UNL.

E. Oliveira published 75 articles in international peer-review journals, being more than 75% of these papers published in first quartile high impact factor publications. Her research contributions have attracted a high number of citations (over 1671 citations to date), with an h-index of 25 (Scopus).

The number of publications in high-level journals and the citations reflects the high quality, productivity and importance of her work to date, being awarded with the (i) Creativity and Quality in Research Activity prize by Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, (ii) the Young Research Award PTIM 2015, (iii)  with the Prize For Women in Science (2016), “Medalhas de Honra L’Oréal Portugal para as Mulheres na Ciência” in healthy Sciences; (iv) and recently scientifically recognized in the 3rd edition of the book Women in Science (https://www.cienciaviva.pt/mulheresnaciencia/terceira-edicao/).

Her scientific interests are focused on (i) synthesis of new bio-inspired emissive ligands as fluorescence chemosensors, (ii) supramolecular chemistry (Photophysics and photochemistry), (iii) applications in vitro (solution and solid studies) and in vivo (cell imaging studies); (iv) synthesis of dye-doped polymers and nanoparticles for metal remediation and antibacterial coatings; (v) synthesis of new emissive nanomaterials, as Quantum Dots and Mesoporous Silica nanoparticles for dual drug delivery and biomarker discovery in biological samples, and (vi) Antibacterial studies of cargo-delivery mesoporous nanoparticles.
