Research Interests

Andreia A. Rosatella obtained her degree in Applied Chemistry at the New University of Lisbon (2005). In 2011 she finished her Ph.D. in organic chemistry under the supervision of Professor Carlos A. M. Afonso at IST-UL. She is currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow, and her current interests are the synthesis and application of new Ionic Liquids, namely Magnetic Ionic Liquids, and different applications. She’s also involved in development of more sustainable methodologies in organic synthesis, for example in flow chemistry.
