I graduated in Biology, with specialization in Molecular Biology and Genetics, from the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. I received my Master Degree in Microbiology from Instituto Superior Técnico. During my thesis project I studied the long-term survival and phenotypic variation of Burkholderia cepacia complex bacteria in saline solutions with or without benzalkonium and direct molecular detection of these bacteria. Currently, I am a grant research holder within the project “COMPCON: Competition under (niche) construction”, GA 725419, (2017 to 2022), under the supervision of Professor Sara Magalhães of the MITE2: Multidisciplinary Investigation Targetting Ecology and Evolution Subgroup, within the Evolutionary Ecology Group of cE3c. My work consists on performing Molecular Biology and Genetic-related tasks, process Next Generation Sequencing data with bioinfomratic tools and assist other members of the laboratoty in their regular tasks. My goal is to take a PhD focusing on my research areas of interest, such us evolucionary genetics, ecology and microbiology.
