Ana Teresa Teresa Lombardi
Ana Teresa Lombardi, professor of Plant Physiology and coordinator of the Biotechnology Laboratory at the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar - Brazil). Member of the Brazilian Society of Ecotoxicology and SETAC. Visiting professor at the University of British Columbia (Canada) in 2008-2009. Graduated in Biological Sciences at UFSCar; Master in Ecology and Natural Resources Dalhousie University (Canada)/UFSCar (Brazil). PhD in Chemistry at UNICAMP (Brazil)/ Istituto di Biofisica (Italy). Postdoctoral at the Phycology Laboratory (UFSCar) and at the Biohydrometallurgy Laboratory (UNESP, Brazil).
My research interests are in the areas of Microalgae ecotoxicology and physiology (production of biomolecules, photochemistry of photosynthesis, fixation of CO2, effect of residues on algal physiology) related to contaminants; Environmental Chemistry specifically related to the interactions of metals and nanoparticles with microalgae.
