Ana Lončarić Božić (female) is a professor at the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology involved in teaching and research in the field of Chemical and Environmental engineering. Her research and professional interests include waste valorisation and treatment, and advanced technologies for water and wastewater treatment with the focus on recalcitrant pollutants and contaminants of emerging concern (CECs): (i) advanced oxidation technologies for removal of CECs; (ii) fate and behaviour of CECs using both experimental and computational approaches, (iii) ecotoxicity and (iv) (nano)materials and (nano)composites for advanced materials for solar photocatalysis and (v) microplastics. A. Lončarić Božić is (co)author of : 5 book chapters, 73 papers in peer-review journals (cited >2500 times, h-index 25; Scopus, January 2023). She participated at scientific conferences with > 100 presentations.  With a background in Chemical and Environmental Engineering, and internationally recognised expertise in water and wastewater treatment and waste management, Ana Lončarić Božić acts as an independent expert for international calls under different programmes including H2020 and Horizon Europe.

She is one of the editors of the Journal of Environmental Engineering (Elsevier) and a member of the editorial boards of Materials (MDPI) and Chemical Engineering Journal Advances (Elsevier).
