I received a Ph.D. in Biology - Microbial Biology from the New University of Lisbon (ITQB NOVA) in 2012 and I am currently working in the Eco-evolutionary Genetics Subgroup in the Evolutionary Ecology group of cE3c.
I am a Posdostoral Research Fellow of the FCT project "The genetics basis of consumer/resource interactions during adaptation to stressful environments".
My research focuses on how species interactions affects the adaptation to new environments. To address this question I am using an experimental system based on two model organisms: the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans and the bacterium Escherichia coli, to understand if and how adaptation of E. coli (food) changes the way C. elegans perceives and adapts to different NaCl concentrations, in its otherwise common maintenance environment.
