Bruno Zêzere

Bio

Bruno Zêzere holds a M.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Aveiro (2017). He was awarded a PhD grant from the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia in 2018. Currently, under supervision of Prof. Carlos Silva and Dr. José R. B. Gomes at the Department of Chemistry and CICECO, University of Aveiro, he is pursuing his PhD focusing on the combination of experimental chromatographic techniques, phenomenological modelling and classical molecular dynamics computer simulations to determine the diffusivities of bioactive compounds in supercritical fluids and liquids.
