Prof. Sonia Loras

Sonia Loras is Chemist since 1995. She is full-time faculty employee of the University of Valencia since 2000. She obtained her doctoral degree in Chemistry in 1999. She has experience of 20 years of teaching and nowadays is professor in the Degree and in the Master in Chemical Engineering Programmes. She is also professor in Doctorate Programmes since 2005. As the head of the Equilibrium in Fluid Phases group (EFIQ), her research activity has been specially focused on the experimental determination and correlation of thermodynamic properties, mainly on the equilibrium vapor-liquid (VLE) of systems with industrial and/or environmental interest. In recent years her research has led to the use of ionic liquids as solvents to replace conventional ones in extractive and azeotropic distillation and extraction processes. In this last stage she has co-supervised two doctoral theses, and in the research group EFIQ we have developed a utility model (ES1128706U) of a new analysis technique for the determination and quantification of ionic liquids in liquid samples.
She is the co-author of more than 40 scientific papers in JCR-listed journals and has participated in numerous international conferences. She has been awarded with 3 externally assessed research merits (six years periods) and with 4 educational merits (five years periods).

Prof. Estela Lladosa
Estela Lladosa was graduated in Chemical Engineering at the Universitat de València. In 2009, he obtained her Ph.D. in Chemical, Environmental and Processes Engineering at the Univertitat de Valencia with the Extraordinary Doctoral Award.
Her research experience was initiated in 2005 in the research group of EFIQ (Equilibrio de Fases en Ingeniería Química). Her research work was perfomed on thermodynamic phases and process simulation. In 2011, Estela was a postdoctoral researcher in the LSRE group headed by Prof. Eugenia Macedo at Porto University.
In 2011, she got an Assistant Professor vacancy at the Chemical Engineering Department of the Universitat de València, at which she is actively developing her teaching and research activities.
