Matilde Moreira-Santos (female) is a Researcher in the Department of Life Sciences-University of Coimbra, at CFE-Centre for Functional Ecology - Science for People & the Planet. Since receiving her PhD degree in Applied Biological Sciences-Environmental Technology in 1998 the emphasis of her national/international research career has been on the reduction of uncertainties in extrapolations inherent to Ecological Risk Assessment (ERA), specifically on exposure routes and environmental effects of natural and anthropogenic stressors (mainly metals and plant protection products) and their mitigation (bioremediation), across biological organization levels up to ecosystems, across geographic regions. This path led her to acquire specialisation in the following domains: (1) ecological relevance/cost-effectiveness of (lab)/in situ tools for site-specific ERA and monitoring; (2) contaminant-driven dispersion of organisms, due to avoidance/recolonisation responses; (3) climate-driven differences in ecosystems direct/indirect contaminant impacts. She published 66 papers in WoS indexed journals (h-index is 22), 58% in journals with a high impact factor (Quartile ranking Q1), with 167 different researchers from 17 different countries across America, Europe, Africa and Asia. Three papers are critical reviews, one on the use of in situ approaches for quality assessments (in 2015) and two on spatial avoidance (in 2016 & 2019), two of her chief research lines. She published 7 book chapters, 3 of them critical reviews, one (in 2012) on the bioremediation of soils s-triazine contaminated (a research field in which ecotoxicology is proven to be a major contribution) and two (in 2017 & 2019) on the inclusion of avoidance in ERA. She was successful in obtaining funding through national/international research projects (19 and 11, respectively; 2 as Principal Investigator) and various services rendered, strengthening national/international collaborations. She attracted national/international students co-supervising MSc, PhD and Post-doctoral students. Worth noting is the number of international collaborations, reflected in (i) students with foreign affiliation when arriving at UC, (ii) co-supervisions with foreign institutions, (iii) papers with co-authors with foreign affiliations (61%), and (iv) lecturer in advanced courses. She was early committed to teach/supervise in national/international (under)gradute, MSc, PhD and post-graduate courses across America, Europe, Africa and Asia. She enrols with the international scientific community attending international congresses (with 54 oral communications in total), being a referee in WoS indexed journals and of projects, and in the organisation of scientific meetings.
