Luísa Margarida Martins is an Associate Professor with Habilitation (Chemical Engineering Department) at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) of the Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal.
She is Researcher (since 1992) at Centro de Química Estrutural (Coordination Chemistry and Catalysis group) of IST, member of the Coordination Commission of this Centre, coordinator of the thematic line Synthesis, Catalysis and Reactivity and member of the Research Core Team and of the Executive Committee of the Catalysis and Sustainability (CATSUS) PhD program.
Luísa’s research broadly focuses on the application of green chemistry and engineering principles in the innovative design of products and sustainable processes. Her main interests range over functionalized materials (in particular, involving C-scorpionates), catalysis (homogeneous, supported or nano-catalysis), and molecular electrochemistry.
In 2017 Luísa was awarded the Scientific Excellence Prize IPL-CGD for the Areas of Technology and Engineering (in recognition of her scientific productivity and impact along the last three years) and in 2019 the Honorary Distinction for the Areas of Chemistry & Chemical Engineering of the Scientific Prize University of Lisbon / CGD Bank.
She is FRSC, member of ISE and and member of the Directive Board of the Portuguese Electrochemical Society (SPE, Treasurer: 2009-2014, President: 2014-18).
She also served as Associate Editor of RSC Advances, Royal Society of Chemistry (2015 - 2018).
