Updated November 2018
I have a Chemical Engineering degree and a PhD in Chemistry for crystallographic studies of biological macromolecules. My general scientific field is Structural Biology and I mainly use neutrons to probe molecules in environments relevant to their native function or activity of interest.
My family is spread around the globe, so in my heart I am with them constantly but in practice it is more like 20/65/15.
My parents, brother and husband are my greatest inspiration. I have also been fortunate to work with fantastic people but my PhD supervisor, Prof. C. Cardin, stands out as a great mentor and a dear friend.
Managing the work/personal time balance, always a difficult part of being a scientist and even more so when an obsession with writing constantly pulls me into a creative world.

Book “Europe is right there” (A Europa é já ali)
In 2016, Susana Teixeira published a novel entitled “Europe is right there” (A Europa é já ali). Portugal is the European Union country with the highest emigration as a proportion of its population. This timely story travels between the emotional and physical distances faced by portuguese: the ones that stay behind, those who leave and those they meet along the way.
