About me

  • I am a portuguese master’s student, currently doing my thesis project at
    KI, under the supervision of Dr. Amit Kumar in Prof. Agneta Nordberg’s
    research group.
    I did my bachelor's in Lisbon, Portugal in Biomedical Engineering and I will
    soon complete my master's in Molecular Bioengineering in University of Porto,


  • My master's thesis topic is assessing and understanding reactive astrogliosis
    in Parkinson’s brain with astroglial tracers BU99008 and Deprenyl.
    Our translational research group focuses on understanding pathological
    hallmarks of neurological diseases mainly using Positron Emission Tomography
    technique (PET) radiotracers, which show great clinical power
    and applicability.
