I receive my Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from NOVA University Lisbon in 1994. Since then, I have been teaching and supervising students from the same university and I am a member of the research center LAQV@REQUIMTE. I have been working in projects characterized by the relevance of the multidisciplinary aspects of organic chemistry in problems of conservation sciences, food science, toxicological challenges, or total synthesis of bioactive targets, always with the focus on developing new synthetic methodologies.
Recently I have been focused in the development of sustainable methodologies for the synthesis of cellulose derivatives.
