Débora de Almeida Azevedo

UFRJ - BRAZIL
Full Professor of the Organic Chemistry Department, Institute of Chemistry, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. Attained a B.Sc. degree in Chemistry from Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1985, a M.Sc. and a D.Sc. in Organic Chemistry in the same University in 1990 and 1994, respectively, with Dr. Francisco Radler de Aquino Neto. After, she achieved a pos-doctoral fellowship in environmental chemistry with Dr. Damia Barceló, Barcelona, Spain, 1999. In 2008, she stayed as guest scientist at the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research in Warnemünde, Rostock, Germany, where worked in the department of Marine Chemistry on the measurement of organic pollutants in seawater. Her experience includes over 21 years as a researcher and Professor at Institute of Chemistry, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (since 1996). She published more than 95 papers, with main focus to chromatography (GC; HPLC), mass spectrometry (MS), environmental chemistry, geochemistry, petroleum chemistry and biogeochemistry. She also teaches principles in chromatography, mass spectrometry, and biomarkers. She is now working with comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography coupled to time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GCxGC-TOFMS) applied mainly to petroleum, biomarkers, and bio-oils, besides stable carbon isotopic composition by isotopic ratio mass spectrometry (GC/C/IRMS). She was an Associate Editor for Química Nova, a Brazilian journal, during 6 years. She supervised 7 pos-doctoral, 15 D.Sc., 28 M.Sc., and 11 B.Sc., besides, more than 12 undergraduated students. She is now supervising 4 doctoral and 2 master students. Researches were granted by Petrobras, CNPq, FAPERJ, CAPES, ANP. She is a CNPq 1C Researcher Fellow.
