PhD student of the Sustainable Chemistry doctoral program, Universidade do Porto.

MSc in Chemistry, 2017, Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade do Porto.

Thesis: “Novas abordagens na síntese de macrociclos porfírinicos para incorporação em polímeros” (“New approaches on the synthesis of porphyrinic macrocycles, for polymer incorporation”)

Keywords: organic synthesis, microwave-assisted synthesis, metal complexes, tetrapyrrolic macrocycles, optical sensors, UV-Vis and fluorescence spectroscopy, photodynamic therapy, smart polymers, metal-organic frameworks

I’m a Sustainable Chemistry PhD student and my work is focused on the development of new photosensitizers for photodynamic therapy. Some of the work objectives are: 1) the conjugation of porphyrins and hydroporphyrins with bioactive molecules and enzymatic inhibitors, which could be released in physiological media through a cleavable linker; 2) synthesis of new hydroporphyrins through mild and efficient protocols (e.g., by using microwave irradiation); 3) incorporation of porphyrins and hydroporphyrins in metal-organic frameworks, which would enhance significantly the therapeutic efficiency of PDT.

PhD student of the Sustainable Chemistry doctoral program, Universidade do Porto.

MSc in Chemistry, 2015, Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade do Porto.

Thesis: “Síntese estereosseletiva de olefinas tri e tetra-substituídas via redução de ésteres αβγδ-insaturados”.

Keywords: organic synthesis, NMR, EPR

I’m a PhD student of the Sustainable Chemistry Doctoral Programme and the aim of my work is 1) to synthesize multifunctional and synthetically versatile metal ion chelators by means of sustainable chemistry procedures. 2) to preform biophysical studies to evaluate the affinity of different chelates and chelators with membrane mimetic systems, using EPR and NMR spectroscopy.
