I have a degree in Biology Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (2003) and worked for a few years at the National Institute for Sea and Atmospheric Research at the Heavy Metals contamination lab. In 2008 I started my PhD in Pharmacy (specialization in Toxicology) at the Faculty of Pharmacy University of Lisbon (FFUL), which I finished in 2012. Afterwards, I was awarded a Post-Doc Fellowship from Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia to study the interaction between mercury compounds and the thioredoxin system, namely to understand if this event was related to the unfolding of cell death at the Research Institute for Medicines (iMed.ULisboa). This project involved a collaboration with Professor Arne Holmgren, at the Division of Biochemistry, Department of Molecular Biochemistry and Biophysics, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm where I took a 6 months secondment in 2015. Presently, I am a researcher at FFUL where I continue this line of research concerning the role of redox active systems (glutathione and thioredoxin) in mercury toxicity, but I have broaden my interests to study the use of redox systems as potential targets in glioblastoma therapy and to evaluate the toxicity of other environmental pollutants such as PAHs and nanoplastics. I have established a network including researchers from the US (Prof. Michael Aschner, Albert Einstein College of Medicine), Brazil (Prof. João Rocha, Federal University of Santa Maria, and Prof. Marcelo Farina, Federal University of Santa Catarina) and China (Dr. Jun Lu, Southwest University) and Portugal (Marta Martins, Faculty of Sciences and Technology New University of Lisbon). Internally, at iMed.ULisboa, I have collaborations with several research groups such as Filipa Vale (expertise in microbiology and bioinformatics) . Throughout my career I collaborated in several research projects, and supervised several students (undergrad, MSc, PhD). Since 2010, I've been enrolled in teaching duties at FFUL in Toxicology related courses, and I have collaborated in Biochemistry, Toxicology and Risk Assessment courses at other Higher Education institutions and I have supervised students of all graduation levels. Since 2022 I am an Assistant Professor at the Instituto Universitário Egas Moniz. Up-to-date (March 2021), I am author in 40 original peer reviewed publications and presented several oral and poster communications in conferences and seminars. I have a post-graduation in Science Communication (Faculty of Social and Human Sciences, New University of Lisbon, 2017) and another in Higher Education Pedagogy. I am certified Laboratory Animal Science researcher (FELASA Category B).
