I received a Ph.D. in Microbiology / Mycology from the University of Lisbon in 2012 and I currently working in the Plant-Soil Ecology group of CE3C.

My research focuses on filamentous fungi, classical taxonomy, diversity and ecology, mainly on marine ecosystems. I also collaborate with Adaptation Biology & Ecological Processes group of CESAM.

My current research is driven by three overarching objectives: i) assess the diversity of marine fungi associated with different substrates collected in marine habitats; ii) identification of filamentous fungi using classical and molecular tools; iii) exploit the possible biotechnological applications of fungi, specially of marine fungi.
