José Daniel Araújo


José Daniel Araújo is currently an Assistant Researcher at the Transport Phenomena Research Center (CEFT). After working 4 years in industrial environment (wastewater treatment field), he finished his PhD on Chemical and Biological Engineering at FEUP in 2008. The PhD work involved the design, operation and modelling of a pilot scale setup based on a continuous structured packing bubble column reactor for vanillin production from lignin oxidation.

Since then, he developed important skills on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) with a strong multidisciplinary perspective, i.e., involving fields like multiphase flow in conventional tubes and micro-channels, mass transfer, reactor engineering, synergies with 3D printing and bioengineering applications. The major highlights of this professional career are: 1) post-doc in a national project (funded by FCT); 2) post-doc fellow from FCT; 3) post-doc in an EU project involving close collaboration with institutions/companies such as SINTEF, Linde, Arkema and Johnson Matthey; 4) Expert evaluator in 5 calls from REA – European Commission; 5) Invited Assistant Professor at FEUP (2014/2015); 6) Assistant researcher at CEFT with teaching duties (in Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer subjects); 7) Guest editor of 2 special issues of international journals; 8) Member of the organizing committee of 1 international conference.

The scientific track record is summarized by: 1) 27 papers in ISI journals; 2) 1132 citations; 3) H-index of 14; 4) 1 book chapter; 5) PI of 1 national project (funded by FCT) and researcher in 6 projects (from which 1 European and 1 in cooperation with industry); 6) supervision of 4 PhD theses (three ongoing) and 6 MSc theses.
