At these renewing times, I felt motivated by Professor João Coutinho's message to apply for the CAD Team.
Being a full-time PhD Student in the rich scientific and social environment of CICECO/UA is an accomplished endeavour of mine.
I'm a mature Student of the Chemistry Doctoral Program, having mixed enterprise and Academy jobs along my way, and co-authored peer-reviewed papers and book chapters, mainly on transport properties. My application is another step of Student representation that included Magna Assembly Board and other functional duties at AAC/UCoimbra.
I surely feel my path differences from the usual PhD Student profile are lesser than the very same everyday tasks, troubles and hopes. And in a liquid, elusive, and mutable, world those must be the focus of the CAD work.
So, on the grounds of PhD Student community service and towards a CICECO sharp governance, I apply for the 2021 CAD Election.
