I am currently a PhD student on the Doctoral Program of Food Science and Technology and Nutrition from UA, UMINHO and UCP. I'm a member of the MEDIBEES project: Monitoring the Mediterranean honeybee subspecies and their resilience to climate change for the improvement of sustainable agro-ecosystems. I completed a MSc in "Genética Molecular e Biomedicina" in 2020 by NOVA School of Science and Technology|FCT NOVA and a Degree in "Genética e Biotecnologia" in 2017 by University of Trás os Montes e Alto Douto (UTAD). I worked as a Researcher in the project "Autent+: Desenvolvimento de abordagens inovadoras com vista à valorização e exploração do potencial de mercado do mel Português" in order to develop new methods to further application in the authentication of Portuguese honey produced by Apis mellifera subs. iberiensis lineage A. I have participated in several events and I have also published 3 scientific article, presented 6 posters at national and / or international congresses and 5 oral communications.
