2010, BSc in Bioengineering at university of Porto2013, Master in Biological Engineering at university of Porto2015, Two years in the Institute of Biology of Leiden (Netherlands)2016, Guest researcher at Erasmus Medical Center (Rotterdam)2017, PhD in Chemical and Biological Engineering
I was graduated in Bioengineering and did a master in Biological Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP). I did my PhD in Chemical and Biological Engineering also at FEUP in collaboration with the Institute of Biology of Leiden (IBL) in Netherlands, where I spent two years. During this time, I was also a guest researcher at Erasmus Medical Center (in Rotterdam). My reseach and collaborative projects resulted in 18 publications in peer reviewed journals and two book chapters, focusing on antibiotic-resistant bacteria, biofilm control, desinfection, plant defense systems and NMR metabolomics. " After my PhD I joined the group of Prof. Ignacio Fernández as posdoctoral researcher, where I am starting to develop new lines in metabolomics, all of them in close relation with agricultural issues.
