Work and Research

Currently, I am PhD student of Tropical Knowledge and Management, with a specialization in Agrobiotecnology and Plant Molecular Biology and I am working specifically with the valorization of Cabo Verde ?s endemic flora, specially the species that are used in traditional medicine, aiming for the scientific validation of their therapeutic value, and thus forging a link between traditional and scientific knowledge. She is also investigating species that are related to economically important species and that can serve as gene donors in order to improve their resilience to climate change-related abiotic stress.

Fields Of Expertise

Molecular genetics and biochemistry
Phylogeny, plant genetics, climate change resilience
