Currently I am PhD student at CIIMAR. After working in LEGE during my BSc and MSc in the identification and understanding of symbionts from marine organisms, I am now enrolled in the Sustainable animal nutrition and feed (SANFEED) doctoral program, from ICBAS-UP in partnership with FCT and Soja de Portugal. The main focus of research is the nutritional influence in of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) microbiome from poultry for improvement of meat quality and animal welfare as well as human diet quality.
