Ligia M. Moretto
Ligia Maria Moretto, born on August 1, 1951, Brazil, obtained a degree in chemical engineering from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil (1973) and an M.S. degree in engineering (1988) from the same university. Dr. Moretto obtained the Ph.D. degree in chemical sciences (1994) with the title “Ion exchange voltammetry for the determination of copper and mercury: Application to sea water.” In 1976–1986, Dr. Moretto has been serving as a Professor at the Centre of Sciences and Technology at the University of Caxias do Sul, Brazil, and an Invited Professor/Researcher at the Department of Physical Chemistry at the National University of Cordoba, Argentina; Groupe NanoSystèmes Analytiques,Université Bordeaux 1, France; Institute de Recherche d’Hydro-Quebec, Canada; and Universidade di Caxias do Sul, Brazil. From March 1996, Dr. Moretto has been serving as a Researcher at the Department of Molecular Science and Nanosystems, University Ca’Foscari of Venice, Italy. Dr. Moretto's research interest at present concerns electroanalytical chemistry, in particular in the subjects of modified electrodes: preparation and characterization of electrodes modified with polymers, thin films deposited by Langmuir-Blodgett's technique, and analytical application of the modified electrodes to environmental analysis and in the field of biosensors; nanostructured electrode materials: preparation, characterization, and application of nanostructured electrodes and ensemble of nanoelectrodes; and electrochemical biosensors.
