Personal profile

Personal information

I concluded my PhD in Chemistry, in 2009, at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), where I acquired expertise inOrganometallic Synthesis, Homogeneous Catalysis, Luminescence and Crystallography. In the following year,and until 2018, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Centro de Química Estrutural (IST), working on thedevelopment of new catalytic systems for polymerization of olefins and in the application of boron moleculesas luminescent materials, on mechanochemistry and crystallography (XRD), which contributed to deepen myskills.In 2018, I moved to Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa (FCT-NOVA), at theDepartment of Chemistry, in the Single Crystal X-ray Crystallography Service, hired, after a competitive call, bythe LAQV (Laboratório Associado para a Química Verde) Research Unit as the new Service Responsible andService Scientist. Since then, I implemented and managed the Structure Determination Service and the X-rayFacility. As new integrated member of the Research Unit, joined the Molecular Synthesis research group.Since 2009, I was Invited Assistant Professor at Inst. Piaget, ISCS-Egas Moniz, IST and FCT-NOVA, keepingregular support to 1st, 2nd and 3rd cycles in Chemistry curricular units. I also teach regularly at advancedcourses and workshops.In 2018, I was awarded a 238k project (PTDC/QUI-QIN/31585/2017), as Principal Investigator. Currently, I am co-PI due to the change in my professional affiliation from IST-UL to LAQV-REQUIMTE, FCT-NOVA, but stillassuming coordination duties. In the last 5 years, participated in 3 other projects, being a member of theManagement Committee (MC substitute member) and of the Communications Team of the COST ActionCA18112. I maintain a national and international collaborative network with researchers from Lisbon, Coimbra,Serbia, UK, France and Spain.Since 2015, I supervised 7 students (1 MSc research fellow, 3 internships, 2 BSc projects, and 1 ongoing MSc),and tutored 3 PhD students in single-crystal XRD. In the last 5 years, I was in the jury of 5 academicexaminations (including PhD), being the main examiner in 3.Up to January 2020, my research activity has produced 55 peer-reviewed publications (26, since 2015), 1 bookchapter and 2 patents, 19 oral communications (7 invited and 5 co-authored) and co-authored 42 postercommunications. Citation metrics in Scopus (ID 24343503400) indicate 55 articles with citation data, with 540citations and an h-index of 14. Invitation to publish in special issues, for oral communications (Chair of a sessionat G11 Workshop (2020); 1 invited plenary lecture in conference (Serbia – 06/2020)) and to be a peer reviewer for10 journals reflect the recognition of my peers.As science outreach activities, I have dynamized guided visits to the Laboratório de Química Organometálica eCatálise (CQE-IST – IOARC group, 2004-2018) and I/was member of the organizing committee of 5 conferencesand workshops, 2 to be held in 2020.
