I hold a Master (2016) and a degree (2013) in Biomedical Science, both by the University of Algarve (UALG).
Since October 2019, I´m a PhD student at the Institute of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (IHMT) Tropical Diseases and Global Health program of Universidade NOVA de Lisboa (UNL).
I worked between 2017 and 2020 at the research center Bandim Health Project (Guinea-Bissau), where I participate as researcher in different projects(s) on public health (malaria, HIV, measles).
The main research area was malaria, where I performed functions such as:
- Coordinator of the implementation of malaria sentinel posts under the project Reduction of malaria mortality and morbidity in Guinea-Bissau and Entomological Surveillance at the Sentinel posts of Bairro Militar and Gabu (2019 – 2020/12/31)
