I was born in France, in 1977, but moved to Portugal with my family less than a year later, back to their hometown, within Ourém municipality.
I studied Pharmaceutical Sciences in the University of Coimbra and obtained my degree in 2001. In the same year, I moved to Porto to start a Phd in Computational Chemistry in FCUP. The PhD, which I finished in 2006, involved the computational study of the inhibition mechanisms of Ribonucleotide Reductase, a fundamental enzyme for the synthesis of DNA.
After a 6-year Post-Doc experience in Computational Biology in CIIMAR, where I studied the philogeny of a class of Protein Phosphatases, I started working in INESC TEC in 2014, where I am currently supporting the coordination of CRACS and LIAAD.
I love reading, travelling and learning new languages.
I am married and a mother of 2.
