I am a Portuguese scientist living in Cambridge with my family. I commute to London daily for my research and love to speak about what I do.
Outside the lab I am a photographer, an eternal dancer and a travel addict!
I love science and I love to travel so I have use the easiness of finding a science-related job to live in different countries. I lived in Portugal, France, Belgium, Denmark and UK and both my mind/personality and my life philosophy have been forever shaped by the exposure to different cultures.
I am also very creative, so I turn to photography to balance my scientific mind. I have exhibited and sold photographs, and I even got some published in VOGUE Italy!
I also have A-levels of classical ballet, which makes me do unconsciently pirouettes in the most random places.
My pronouns are:
I study how the DNA is folded inside the nucleus of the cells allows for different cell types to arise during embryo development.
