About

Luisa Carvalho is graduated in Chemical Engineering. She obtained a MSc in Wood Science from the Université Henri Poincaré Nancy I (currently Université de Lorraine) and a PhD in Chemical Engineering from FEUP. She is currently coordinator professor at ESTGV(IPV-Polytechnic Institute of Viseu) where she teaches in the course of Licenciatura in Furniture Technology and Design. She is also invited Professor at ESTGF(IPP-Polytechninc Institute of Porto in the course of "Licenciatura" in Wood Technology. She is staff member of LEPABE (Laboratory for Process Engineering, Environment, Biotechnology and Energy) and member of board directors of ARCP (Association Competence Network in Polymers). She is also the coordinator of SC2-wood-based panels from the national standardisation committee CT14-wood. Her research interests include wood adhesives (development of new eco-friendly binding systems), wood-based panels (process modeling, formaldehyde and VOCs emissions), high-pressure laminates (incorporation of nanomaterials for innovative functionalities), wood machining/finishing (monitoring and control of processes, evaluation of finished surfaces), wood-plastic composites (compatibility between bio-sourced fibers with thermoplastics)
