I have a Bachelor degree in Microbiology (2016) and a Master degree in Biotechnology and Innovation (2019) from Portuguese Catholic University. My main areas of work are compounds extraction through various methodologies (e.g enzymatic) and its chemical characterization, such as protein content or amino acids profile. I also have experience in evaluating biological properties, such as antioxidant or antihypertensive activity. At the present, I work as a Lab assistant/PhD student at ALCHEMY, a UCP-Amyris joint collaboration project, in Porto.
