My academic education includes a bachelor degree in Biology followed by a master degree in Ecology, Environment and Territory, both in Faculty of Sciences of University of Porto. During the academic course I had the opportunity to do an extracurricular internship um environmental education at CIIMAR and a curricular internship in CIBIO concerning conservation, genetics and phylogeography. Finally, I developed my master thesis in phytoremediation with the theme “Constructed Wetlands for saline wastewater treatment: role of three different plant species in salinity and nutrient removal” and was able to publish a paper in the journal Science of the Total Environment. In 2017 I was a research fellow in Biotechnology School (UCP) with the project “R4Textiles- Development of sustainable textiles based on the valorization of textile and agrofood waste”. Currently I am a research fellow in the project “EcoTex- Development of more sustainable solutions for textile staining”.
