Johns Hopkins University
My U.S. adventure started in 2012 when I came from Leça da Palmeira to Baltimore to pursue a PhD in Molecular Microbiology and Immunology in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. I graduated in Biochemistry from Universidade do Porto (Licenciatura, 2009; Mestrado, 2011) having bacterial resistance to antibiotics as my research focus. I am currently also a student representative on the Board of Directors of the National Capital Area Chapter (NCAC) of the Fulbright Association.
