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.

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.
