Ana Sofia Pires graduated in Chemistry, in 2018, at Faculty of Sciences of University of Porto (FCUP). Her bachelor’s internship, at CIQUP, was about Polymer/surfactant mixtures as dispersants and non-covalent functionalization agents of multiwalled carbon nanotubes.
In 2020, obtained her Master’s Degree in Chemistry at the Faculty of Sciences of University of Porto (FCUP). During that period she developed a thesis entitled “pH sensors for anthocyanin application in food packaging” at the FoodPolyphenolLab.
Since October 2021, she is a PhD student of the Doctoral Programme in Sustainable Chemistry, LAQV-REQUIMTE where she aims to develop new colorimetric and fluorescent systems based on pyranoflavylium for selective recognition of metabolites resulting from food degradation.
