I am a structural biologist with a Ph.D. in Biophysics (2014). I dedicate my career to investigating how the structural dynamics of proteins regulate health and disease. I have a multidisciplinary background covering sample preparation, data acquisition, and computational modeling of multidomain and intrinsically disordered proteins and their complexes. Recently, I started focusing on understanding how these flexible proteins drive and dictate the formation and homeostasis of membrane-less organelles - a recently acknowledged form of biomolecular condensates crucial for life. Finally, I am passionate about software architecture, open-source practices, and efficient numerical computations in Python. I was born in Portugal in 1986 and have worked in ten different research centers in eight countries. Here you will find a summary of my research and professional activities. Feel welcome to contact me.
