Fabiane is a visitor PhD from Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil, under supervision of dr. Robin Geitenbeek and prof. dr. ir. Bert Weckhuysen. She is working on bio-oil up-grade under mild reactions conditions to produce carbon nanostrutures and magnetic sulfonated carbon materials. She also wants to understand the mechanism of these carbon nanostructures formation as well as its purification.
