Isabel Correia was born in Viseu in 1971, graduated in 1997 in Chemical Engineering at Instituto Superior Tecnico, and completed her Ph.D. in 2003 also in Instituto Superior Tecnico. From 2003 to 2008 she did postdoctoral studies in several universities: IST, TuDelft and Imperial college. In 2008 she joined Centro de Química Estrutural as an Assistant Researcher and in 2013 she received a Principal Researcher position to work at the same institute. Her research interests are mainly in the areas of bioinorganic and coordination chemistry. She co-authored more than 85 publications, 3 book chapters, 14 conference proceedings and more than 100 technical presentations (14 as speaker) at national and international conferences.
