(Information collected in July 2019)
In 1999 I obtained a Bachelor´s in Chemical Engineering and in 2003 a first University degree in Chemistry. I received my PhD degree from University of Aveiro in July 2007 on the research field of Chemistry, sub research field of Physical Chemistry. Currently I am an Auxiliary Researcher at CICECO/University of Aveiro. All my research work allowed me to evolve scientifically and acquire skills in the field of photoluminescent materials, molecular spectroscopy, DFT/TD-DFT calculations, and lanthanide spectroscopy.
Since the beginning of my PhD (2004-2007) I have been lucky to perform neutron experiments. I am an experienced user (Inelastic Neutron Scattering experiments with TOSCA and MAPS, at ISIS/STFC, UK)

Women are still under-represented in many areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. It is up to us to change that trend.
I work to get a commitment of 50/50 family/work equilibrium
My parents are my greatest inspiration. I have also had the opportunity to work with fantastic people, but my PhD supervisor Professor Paulo Ribeiro-Claro continues to be a great mentor as well as an excellent friend.
The challenges in achieving effective Mentoring and Teaching as well as conducting Research.
Work hard every day. Don’t be afraid and do not give up.
