My background is Psychology. I graduated in Clinical Psychology from Universidade de Lisboa and I did part of my Bachelor’s degree at Université Bordeaux Ségalen (Bordeaux II, France), under Erasmus Exchange Program. I also obtained my Master degree in Psychology (Social Psychology) from Université de Moncton, in Canada, as part of the Canadian Francophonie Scholarship Program.
My passion for health matters, interdisciplinary and my willingness to continuous learning led me to move to Biology/Neurosciences.
In November 2016, I had the opportunity to join Rui Oliveira’s lab to develop my PhD, that is enrolled in the PGCD (Graduate Program Science for Development) of Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência.
I am now interested in understanding the neuromolecular mechanisms that regulate social memory in zebrafish, and their genetic basis.
