Dr. Nuno Basílio studied Chemistry at the University of the Algarve (Portugal) and obtained his PhD in 2011 from the University of Santiago de Compostela. Then he moved to the NOVA University of Lisbon tPostdoctoral Fellow and currently is an assistant researcher at the same university. His research interests focus on stimuli-responsive self-assembled systems, molecular switches, supramolecular (photo)catalysis and molecular recognition and sensing of biological relevant compounds using synthetic receptors.
