Simoni Da Ros

Simoní Da Ros is a Teaching Fellow in Sustainable Materials and Manufacturing at WMG, University of Warwick, where her teaching focus lies in the application of sustainability principles in the analysis of materials and product systems. She is also an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA, AdvanceHE). Before joining WMG, she worked as a Research Associate in polymer degradation chemistry at the University College London (UCL), in the Institute for Sustainable Heritage from the Bartlett School of Environment, Energy, and Resources, where her research focused on investigating the degradation of modern polymeric objects in heritage collections, as part of the European Research Council-funded project 'COMPLEX'. Simoní has also worked as a Research Assistant and Post-doctoral Researcher at the Chemical Engineering Program (PEQ) from The Alberto Luiz Coimbra Institute for Graduate Studies and Research in Engineering (COPPE) at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), where she researched the oxidative coupling of methane under the supervision and guidance of Prof. José Carlos Pinto. Simoní concluded her PhD in Chemical Engineering in 2017, also at PEQ/COPPE/UFRJ, being funded by the Brazilian National Council of Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq). During her PhD, she investigated the kinetics of ethanol conversion into 1,3-butadiene and also performed 1 year of collaborative research at the University of Bath, under the supervision and guidance of Prof. Matthew David Jones. Simoní obtained her Master degree in Processes Engineering in 2012, studying the production of ethylene from ethanol, under the supervision and guidance of Prof. Marcio Schwaab and Elisa Barbosa-Coutinho at the Federal University of Santa Maria (UFSM). Finally, Simoní obtained her undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering in 2010 also at UFSM. Simoní's research interests involve the development and optimisation of sustainable chemical processes. She has a particular interest in the development of recycling technologies applied to polymeric wastes, the application of scientific methods to understanding polymer degradation, and the mathematical modelling of these transient processes. She is also interested in the design of sustainable materials produced from alternative, renewable sources. Please see the following link for Simoní's CV:
