Dr. Marta Almeida
is researcher at C2TN, Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal.
Over the last 15 years, Almeida has dedicated her research to the atmospheric chemistry. Her work showed that nuclear analytical techniques can be advantageously used in aerosol studies, and at the moment, the complete characterization of the particles at the receptor is used by the researcher to elucidate the sources of the pollutants and the processes associated with their formation, to assess local, regional and long-range transport and to identify mitigation options focusing on the improvement of the air quality.
Almeida participated in 19 research projects, published 80 scientific papers and is a member of the international board of Biomonitoring of Atmospheric Pollution (BioMAP).
