Born in Abrantes and lived there until 2012 where, when I took BSc in Physics at Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. At the end of the Bsc, I continued in science through an MSc in Physics, specialized in Astrophysics and Cosmology which ended in 2017. Currently enrolled in a PhD program at the same faculty on Astronomy and Astrophysics.
I am currently working with spacecraft imaging data of solar system planets, in order to study the dynamics and features of their atmospheres. I work in collaboration with the rest of the planetary systems group on the Lisbon node of IA and some aspects of my research are part of an international ongoing collaboration to study the characteristics and dynamics of atmospheric gravity waves on solar system bodies.
