I am a researcher at Institute of Astrophysics and Space Sciences (IA) in Porto. I got my first degree in Physics/Applied Mathematics (Astronomy) by the University of Porto in 2007. In 2008 completed the Mathematics Triplos with distinction at the University of Cambridge (UK). In 2012 obtained a PhD from the University of Portsmouth (UK). After my graduation at the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation, I worked in Ciência Viva (PT), University of the Western Cape in South Africa, Università Degli Studi di Padova and Queen Mary University of London. I have been a member of IA since 2021.

My current research interests focuses in studying the large-scale structure of the Universe in the optical and radio frequencies to understand the composition, formation and evolution of the universe and test General Relativity at cosmological scales. I am interested in using the Square Kilometre Array Observatory, and its precursor MeerKAT, in the radio and Euclid in the optical/infrared to probe the very early universe.
