I am a Geologist with 16 years of experience in marine geology in the field of marine georesources that became a Manager of Science and Communication since 2014. After a Degree in Geology by Universidade de Lisboa and a Master in Georesources by the Universidade Técnica de Lisboa, I received a Doctorate in Natural Sciences from the University of Kiel. My Doctorate research focused on the importance of ferromanganese deposits of the seamounts in the Northeast Atlantic Ocean, namely within the Portuguese Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), as potential resources, as well as paleoclimatic archives. In 2014 I started working as a Manager of Science and Technology within the European Marine Observation and Data Network- EMODnet-Geology Project. Here my responsibilities included compiling, harmonizing and disseminating the marine mineral data from the Portuguese EEZ, available in national and international databases, for incorporation into the EMODnet database/portal (EU/DG MARE). In 2017 I embraced a new challenge and became the Manager of Science and Technology of CERENA - Centro de Recursos Naturais e Ambiente, a research Center from Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa. Since then I have been assisting the Executive Committee of CERENA in the management of the center activities, namely by providing support in the preparation of reports and applications for national and international funding, by preparing material to promote and disseminate the scientific and technological activities developed by the Center, by co-creating a new webpage and its management (https://cerena.pt), by managing Twitter and LinkedIn accounts (@CERENA_research; https://www.linkedin.com/company/cerena-centro-de-recursos-naturais-e-ambiente/), and by acting as person of contact of the research center for science communication and outreach activities. Presently Executive and Communication Officer at CERENA. I also belong to the production team of 'Explica-me Como se Tivesse 5 Anos' (Explain it like I'm 5), a science communication program at Técnico where scientists answer questions from children, and other curious people, about their scientific fields in a very simple and accessible way. 'Explica-me Como se Tivesse 5 Anos' is an initiative of the "ComunicaCiência" - Science Communication Group of the Research Units of the Instituto Superior Técnico (https://explicame.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/). Published 2 peer-reviewed papers. In her professional activities, she interacted with 19 collaborators in scientific works; most frequent terms in the context of scientific, technological and artistic-cultural production are: Geochemistry; Isotopic geochemistry; Water chemistry; Sea water; Atlantic Ocean (Northeast); Marine Geology; Georesources; Paleoceanography; Mineralogy and Geochemistry of marine ferromanganese deposits, namely Fe-Mn crusts and nodules; Science Communication.

2019/11/26 - 2020/07/13 CERENA SEMINARS 2019/2020 The CERENA Seminars 2019/2020 are intended to be a forum for discussion between researchers, students, industrial partners from diverse scientific areas. Each seminar is based on a sustainable development goal to which CERENA’s researchers contribute with their research. The seminars are organized as 3 presentations: one presentation by a researcher from the Geosciences/Geoengineering area, one by a researcher from the Chemical or Materials Engineering, and one by one of CERENA’s PhD students, succeeded by a debate.
