Recent PhD graduate in the field of Nanotechnologies and Nanosciences at NOVA School of Science and Technology, in collaboration with CENIMAT|i3N, BioMark and Champalimaud Foundation, and holding a position as Junior researcher at CENIMAT|i3N. I have been a researcher since 2014, focused on the nanotech-field, with expertise in chemical and bio-detection, nanoparticles synthesis and modelling and laser-based processes to be integrated in point of-care biosensors. The search for the use of sustainable materials and processes in the development of functional devices has been one of my main goals. I have participated in several scientific conferences and international and national R&D projects and, my experience as a researcher has allowed me to establish several scientific collaborations that led to peer-reviewed publications translated in a h-index of 13 (February, 2022).
