I graduated in Biochemistry from the School of Sciences, the University of Minho in 2015. During my bachelor’s degree I had the opportunity to perform na internship at School of Medicine under Marta Viana Pereira and Filipe Pinto supervision on cancer field. In 2017, I completed an MSc degree in Health Sciences from School of Medicine, the University of Minho. During my master thesis, I started to work in Sandra Costa laboratory team and my scientific field of interest was fetal lung macrophages influence on alveolar and vascular lung development. In 2018, I started my Phd in (Applied) Health Sciences in poartenership with Stemmatters. My PhD thesis is focused on understand how fetal lung macrophages modulate biological and molecular processes of lung differentiation and injury.
