Breve CV

Ana Belén Moldes es licenciada en Ciencia y Tecnología de los Alimentos por la Universidad de Vigo en 1996 y doctora por el Departamento de Ingeniería Química, con premio extraordinario de Doctorado, que también obtuvo por la misma Universidad en el año 2000. Ha realizado diversas estancias de investigación en el “USDA Forest Service”, perteneciente al Departamento Americano de Agricultura, en Madison-Wisconsin (EE.UU.), así como en el Departamento de Ingeniería Biológica de la Universidad de Minho en Braga-Portugal. Fué investigadora del programa nacional «Juan de la Cierva» en el Departamento de Edafología y Química Agrícola de la Universidad de Santiago de Compostela de 2004 a 2006. Paralelamente también fue Profesora asociada a tiempo parcial en el Departamento de Ingeniería Química de Universidad de Vigo de 2001 a 2006. Posteriormente consiguió un contrato “Ramón & Cajal”, desarrollando su investigación en el Departamento de Ingeniería Química de la Universidad de Vigo entre los años 2006 a 2010. Destacar que en la convocatoria de 2005 del “Programa Ramón & Cajal ” logró el primer puesto en el área de Tecnología Química. Desde 2010 a 2020 ha sido Profesora Contratada Doctora, con plaza fija, en el Departamento de Ingeniería Química de la Universidad de Vigo y desde 2020 es Profesora Titular en el mismo departamento. En 2009 Ana Moldes junto con otro profesor del Programa Ramón y Cajal, José M. Cruz, crearon el grupo de investigación “EQ10 team”. El grupo de investigación está reconocido por la Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería Industrial de la Universidad de Vigo con alto potencial de crecimiento. Este premio también es reconocido por el Gobierno Autonómico con la concesión de una financiación consecutiva a partir de 2009 dedicada a dar apoyo económico a grupos de investigación con potencial de crecimiento.
A lo largo de su carrera investigadora su trabajo se ha centrado en la utilización de residuos agroindustriales para la producción biotecnológica de aditivos alimentarios y / o químicos, principalmente ácido láctico y biosurfactantes, así como la obtención de bioadsorbentes. Hasta fecha, ha publicado más de 140 artículos en revistas internacionales, con un índice H de 35. Ha codirigido más de 7 Tesis Doctorales presentadas en el formato de artículos obteniendo cada Tesis al menos 6 artículos publicados en revistas SCI, y en algunas de las ellos varias patentes. Es coautora de 7 patentes, ha publicado más de 10 capítulos de libros y ha presentado más de 150 comunicaciones en congresos. Una de estas patentes tiene extensión PCT a varios países de la Unión Europea, y está licenciada por una empresa de ámbito internacional.
A lo largo de su carrera investigadora ha participado en más de 20 proyectos de investigación, siendo investigadora principal en 4 Proyectos de Investigación del Plan Nacional de I + D + i, un proyecto regional y varios locales. En cuanto a su actividad de transferencia en 2019 fue galardonada por la Real Sociedad Academia Gallega con el “Premio Fernando Calvet” y durante los últimos años ha liderado diversos contratos de transferencia con empresas nacionales e internacionales.
Por último, tiene reconocidos 3 sexenios de investigación (el último concedido el 23/06/2016) y 4 quinquenios docentes.
