Department: Molecular Nanoscience and Organic Materials
I obtained my Bachelor Degree with “The Best Student of the Degree Award”, in Biochemistry at Madeira University, Portugal where I was exposed to a wide range of scientific fields, spanning biochemistry, molecular biology, and chemistry. Beyond the extensive lectures and discussions, the degree also has a strong experimental component, leading to my experience in cell culturing, an array of biochemistry assays and quantitative proteomics, to name a few.
More recently I concluded a Master Degree in the Department of Chemistry and Biotechnology at The University of Tokyo. During my studies in Japan I was given the freedom to propose and research my own topic of interest in the area of MOFs (Metal-Organic Frameworks), which culminated in control over MOF crystallization within confined spaces, such as vesicles, with great success.
Now, funded by EU-Marie Curie Fellowship - DOCtoral training programme in Functional Advanced Materials (DOC-FAM) I am excited for having the opportunity, in the Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona, Spain, to develop dynamic supramolecular bio-interfaces as biomimetic materials for cancer immunotherapies.
