About

Nuno da Rosa Neng was born in Macao in 1983 and moved to Portugal in 1998. He graduated in Chemistry from Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa (FCUL) in 2005 and completed a Master degree in Biomedical Inorganic Chemistry – Applications in Diagnostic and Therapy in 2007 at the same institution. In 2012, N.R. Neng completed a PhD degree in Analytical Chemistry by the FCUL with a PhD grant from the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT). After the PhD degree, he gained a post-doctoral fellowship from FCT to continue his research in Separation Science & Technology group from Centro de Química e Bioquimica (CQB-FCUL). In between his MSc – PhD degree and PhD – Post-Doc research, he was a holder of 2 research grants funded by FCT R&D projects, METALTRAVEL (POCTI/CTE-GEX/61700/2004) and NIDOS (PTDC/QUI-QUI/098053/2008), respectively. Since obtaining his graduation, N.R. Neng is author of 2 pending national patents, 37 articles (21 articles after PhD degree) in international peer reviewed journals and 3 conference proceedings with an accumulated impact factor of 91.47 (average impact factor of 2.47), nearly 450 citations (388 without self-citations) and an H-index of 13 (Source: Scopus, September 2015). N.R. Neng is first author of 11 published articles, 3 as senior (corresponding) author and his top article has near 60 citations. 20 of the 37 articles were published in the first quartile (Source: ISI Web Knowledge, September 2015). He also regularly served as a reviewer for some international scientific journals. N.R. Neng has 7 oral communications (2 with invitation) and 52 posters presentation in national and international conferences. He completed the co-supervision of 1 graduation project and several short-term trainees and is currently co-supervising 2 MSc thesis. He was examiner in 1 graduation project. Since 2013, he has also been helping as teaching assistant in laboratory class to the undergraduate students of the chemistry and biochemistry course at FCUL. He is also a member of local Organizing Committee of the upcoming XVI Latin-American Congress on Chromatography and 9th National Meeting on Chromatography (XVICOLACRO&9ENC), to be held in Lisbon in 2016. N.R. Neng specialized in experimental techniques in the area of separation science and technology with the prominence to the development, optimization and validation of new analytical strategies for trace analysis of chemical compounds. In this context, his research field fall upon areas such as environment, food, forensic, clinical trials, among others.
