Section: Økotoksikologi og risikovurdering
PhD at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (2015), with a 3 year Marie Curie Scholarship at the Norwegian Institute for Water Research. Specialization in the area of Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology. Master in Marine and Coastal Studies (EMAC VI) at the Faculty of Science and Technology in Portugal. Degree in Marine Biology and Fisheries (5 years) at the Faculty of Science and Technology in Portugal. Worked in several scientific projects covering diverse areas of knowledge within biology and environmental sciences such as ecotoxicology, biomonitoring and sampling, environmental chemistry, molecular biology, microbiology and aquaculture. Developed skills and experience in planning scientific experiments, develop field surveys and laboratory work, carry out statistical data treatment and writing of scientific reports and manuscripts for well-reputed journals, and attended several scientific meetings, often presenting oral communications.
