Short CV
Degree in Biology by the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the University of Coimbra;
MSc in Plant Biology by the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of the University of Coimbra;
PhD in Ecological and Evolutionary Genetics by the School of Biological Sciences of the University of Edinburgh, UK;
Currently holds a Post-doctoral fellowship at the Institute of Molecular Pathology and Immunology of the University of Porto (Ipatimup) awarded by the Portuguese Foundation of Science and Technology (FCT).

My current research interests involve the identification of genetic susceptibility markers associated with risk of development of complex diseases, such as gastric cancer, Crohn’s disease and thyroid autoimmune diaseases. My line of research is particularly focused on the design and analysis of genetic association studies employing experimental strategies like linkage disequilibrium mapping and tools like HapMap and other human genetic variation databases.
