Sonia Suárez

Project Manager

I received a degree in Chemical Engineering in 2002 from University of Santiago de Compostela (USC). Then I started my Master studies in the Biogroup at USC financed by the FPU fellowship from the Spanish Government to perform my doctoral thesis, which was defended in April 2008. My research has focused on the removal of organic micropollutants (mainly pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and estrogens) in sewage treatment plants (STPs), including primary, secondary and postreatment processes. Since 2008 I work as Project Manager at Biogroup, being my tasks mainly devoted to support proposal writing, partner search, management of ongoing projects and networking.
