Marta received her degree in Applied Chemistry from Universidade Nova de Lisboa in 1996. In 2003 she concluded her Ph.D in Chemistry at the same university with the dissertation: Stereoselective synthesis of biologically active indolizidinic alkaloids. Between 2003 and 2005 she was an assistant professor at Piaget Institute and at FCT/UNL and in 2009 she become a Post-doctoral fellow at the Chemistry department of FCT/UNL in the Molecular Structure and Interactions NMR group. In 2015 she joined CENIMAT in the NMR lab.

- Main scientific interests:

Application and development of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to study molecular interaction processes especially in ionic liquids and supercritical CO2. High Pressure NMR techniques. Establishment of protocols in diffusion, relaxation and nuclear Overhauser effect spectroscopy to probe solvation behaviour. Development of solid state and imaging protocols to study ionic liquid polymers.
