I hold a BSc (2011) and a MSc (2013) in Biomedical Sciences obtained at the University of Beira Interior, Covilhã, Portugal. From 2014 to 2016, I have worked as a Software Engineer at Accenture Technological Solutions, in Lisbon, Portugal. I have joined the Sertoli Cell and Gamete Biology group in September 2016, to work on a research project in the role of glycerol and its metabolism in the testicular cells, particularly in Sertoli Cells, under supervision of Pedro F. Oliveira. In 2017, I have enrolled the PhD programe on Biomedical Sciences, at the Institute of Biomedical Sciences Abel Salazar, University of Porto, Porto, Portugal (ICBAS-UP), under supervision of Marco G. Alves. My main research interests are the metabolic and epigenetic mechanisms underlying paternally-induced transgenerational effects of high-fat diets in male fertility and metabolic health.
I´m a Master thesis student at the MSNZ in Würzburg (AG Burger). In my thesis I currently try to decipher the location of Double-strand breaks in paraspeckle deficient cells by using BLISS sequencing. Before my excursion into the field of DNA damage repair and RNA research, I did my Master studies (Biochemistry) at the University of Würzburg with a focus in Infection biology and Virology. During an internship at the Överby lab at the University of Umeå (Sweden) working on an RNA virus, I first came in contact with RNA research and found my liking for it. Before that I did my Bachelor studies at the University of Jena and a biotechnical training at the School of life Science Hamburg. I´m a member and volunteer of the jGBM (youth organization German society of biochemistry and molecular biology) and in my free time I have co-organized Scientific symposia in the past.
