I have a Degree in Biology and a Master’s in Agronomical Engineering, both from the University of Lisbon, Portugal. I have always enjoyed working with plants and have been fortunate enough to cover fields from plant genetics, physiology, phenological development and plasticity. In September 2020 I moved to Oxford, England, to work for an Agritech company focused on discovering novel herbicides with new modes of action. As a member of IGS, I am thrilled to use my knowledge and apply it towards growing plants in a vertical farming system. In my spare time I like listening to music, spending time with friends and being by the beach.
