About

PhD in Ciências Biomédicas in 2013/11/29 by Universidade do Porto, Instituto de Ciências Biomédicas Abel Salazar. Mestrado in Biologia e Ecologia do Litoral Marinho in 2007/12/17 by Universidade de Évora. Licenciatura in Biologia in 2003/12/18 by Universidade de Évora. I am a biologist that in the course of my PhD and post-doctoral work have been dedicated to the study of organisms epigenetic mechanisms in response to environmental constraints and to the investigation of the molecular interactions of plant-arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) towards tolerance to external stresses. During the last 5 years the core of my work stands on the bioinformatic analysis of plant and AMF high-throughput sequencing data, regarding a further understanding of the molecular mechanisms regulating plant responses to abiotic stress (mRNA transcriptome, miRNAs). I have participated in several projects regarding how plants in symbiosis with different AMF respond to manganese stress and heat stress. Several papers as first author have been published/submitted. I am also participant in projects that aim to unravel the interactions between plants and their pathogens, and potential symbionts for applied management of host pests. Furthermore, I have contributed for studies regarding the molecular regulation of olive adventitious rooting and olive auxin transporters. I am (co)author of 24 published papers mostly in Q1, counting more than 400 citations. I have an h-index of 12 (Scopus), and I am a regular reviewer of scientific manuscripts. I have edited a special issue on Biology (IF 5.079, Q1) and I currently edit the special issue "Molecular Mechanisms Associated with Plant Plasticity upon Environmental Stresses" on the journal Plants (IF 4.658, Q1). I am a Reviewer Editor for the Section Plant Symbiotic Interactions in Frontiers in Plant Science. Since 2019 I lecture on the UCs Melhoramento e Biotecnologia Vegetal (Master in Agronomics) and Plant Biotechnology (Degree in Biotechnology), at the University of Évora.
