I graduated in biotechnology by Coimbra College of Agriculture and completed my MSc degree in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon in 2016. As master student, my internship experience was fulfilled in CEBAL’s Animal Genomics and Bioinformatics group, where I started to apply different computational pipelines to analyze high throughput sequence data. During this period, I carried out a study, whose main goal was to characterize the maritime pine transcriptomic profile in response to infection with pine wood nematode, using RNA-Seq data.

Before I got my PhD, I had the opportunity to work in different research projects, which allowed me to become familiar with a range of computational tools to analyze high throughput sequence data in population genetics and plant disease management experiments.
Currently, I am a PhD student from BioDiv PhD programme and my thesis focuses on the development of genomic tools for the identification of molecular markers in sheep, combining modern sequencing methodologies with phenotypic records. In particular to implement a molecular traceability system to be used as control mechanism for frauds that threaten the production of Serra da Estrela cheese.
