Ana Rita Ferreira


Ana Rita Ferreira is an environmental engineer at FCT/UNL currently doing a PhD in Environmental and Sustainability with a strong focus on organic and inorganic contaminants removal from soil and water.  The research target has been the design, development and optimization of an electrokinetic technology (EK) for emerging contaminants removal and critical materials recovery focusing on future applicability.

Ana Rita has been involved in different international projects where she worked with several technical solutions besides EK (phytoremediation and simulated constructed wetlands), and EK in extreme environmental conditions as the Artic environment and a broad range of contaminants including the development of analytical methods.
