I started my studies at Karolinska Institutet as a Master student in 2013. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to stay and look for a PhD position. Right now I am on my second year of my PhD studies at the Department of Neurobiology, Care Science and Society (NVS) at the Center for Alzheimer Research.
Currently I am, as well, a member of the Student Council at NVS as a Deputy Chairman (http://ki.se/en/nvs/the-doctoral-student-council-at-nvs)
- Bachelor of Science from Univeristy of Porto (Portugal).
- Master of Science from Stockholm University (Sweden).
I am currently a PhD student working with Mitochondria-ER associated membranes (MAM). In our group we try to understand the role between this subcellular structure and Alzheimer's Disease (AD) - with special interest in Aβ production. We are interested as well in the relationship between MAM, Aβ production and autophagy.
