Short CV

2016 - 2018: post-doctoral fellow at CICECO - Aveiro Institute of Materials under the supervision of Doctor Luis Mafra and Professor João Rocha;

2010 - 2016: post-doctoral fellow at CICECO - Aveiro Institute of Materials and Laboratorium für Physikalische Chemie, ETH Zürich supervised by Doctor Luis Mafra, Professor João Rocha and Professor Beat H. Meier; 

2009: PhD in Physical Chemistry: " Weak intermolecular interactions in advanced functional materials: spectroscopic and computational studies” (supervision of Prof. Paulo Ribeiro-Claro), Chemistry Department, University of Aveiro. During this period, 5 months were spent in the University of Malaga, Spain, working in the group of Professor Juan Carlos Otero, developing SERS studies on pharmaceutical compounds;

2005: Degree in Physics and Chemistry (for teaching), Univ. Aveiro (17/20) 

SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS 

- NMR characterization of modified nanoporous solid sorbents with potential for gas capture (by using 13C-labelled CO2 in a gas mixture); 

- NMR characterization of porous materials relevant in heterogeneous catalysis (study of Lewis and Brønsted acidity);

- Combining high-resolution solid-state NMR methods, X-ray diffraction and computational approaches to study crystal packing interactions in small molecules (namely pharmaceuticals) and materials - NMR crystallography; 

- Study drug-drug and drug-host interactions of molecular scaffolds as drug delivery systems. 

OTHER INTERESTS 

- Responsible for preparing and delivering solid-state NMR Hands-on courses (II Jornadas Nacionais de Caracterização de Materiais - 2017 and IV Ibero-American NMR Meeting - 2012). - Co-President of the Young Chemists Group (GQJ) of the Portuguese Chemical Society (SPQ) between 2010-2012 - Member of the organizing committee of several scientific events: Chemistry Olympics competitions, the Portuguese Physics students meeting (2004), International conference on solubility phenomena (2004), Young Portuguese Chemists meeting (2010), European Young Chemists Network (EYCN) delegates assembly (2012) and EYCN contribution to the 4EuCheMS (2012), IV Ibero-American NMR Meeting (2012).
