I have a BSc degree in Applied Biology and concluded de MSc degree in Plant Molecular Biology, Biotechnology and Bioentrepreneurship, both at the University of Minho. Throughout more than two years I collaborated with the Functional Plant Biology Lab in the Biology Department where I did my MSc thesis. During this period, I worked with the plant model Arabidopsis thaliana, performing the phenotypic, physiological, biochemical and molecular characterization of plants exposed to abiotic stress.


After finishing my MSc degree, I was given the opportunity to develop exciting work as part of a researcher fellowship of the FCT project “SUMOdulator - Researching SUMO modulation of plant abiotic stress responses”. Afterwards, I did an internship at BioInvitro, developing micropropagation of plant species with national economic interest, and implementing a research project in in vitro micrografting.


I am currently a BioDiv PhD student at CIBIO-InBIO, developing the project “Characterization of grapevine diversity and functional inference of berry color and aromatic typicity using whole-genome sequencing”.
