After high school graduation he obtained a bachelor degree in Applied Chemistry (Organic Chemistry Profile) at Universidade NOVA de Lisboa (FCT-UNL) in 2011. Three years later, he obtained his master degree in Pharmaceutical and Medicinal Chemistry at Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Lisbon.

His interest in research started a few years ago. In his masterís dissertation he performed a phytochemical study of an African medicinal plant (Cleistochlamys kirkii) in order to discover new compounds and evaluate their antibacterial activities. At the same time, he was awarded a research fellowship, at Faculty of Pharmacy (University of Lisbon), in which he developed new libraries of spirooxindoles, phenylalaninol and tryptophanol derivatives with antitumor activity through potential inhibition of the p53-MDM2 inhibition. Additionally, he was able to evaluate the cytotoxic activity of spiropyrazoline oxindoles in cancer stem cells at Mario Negri Institute (Milan, Italy).

After completion of his master, he was awarded with a research fellowship at Universidade NOVA de Lisboa (FCT-UNL). He was involved in the development of new Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) devices with permanent memory effect, to be applied in smart windows.

In leisure time he likes to travel, get to know new places, people and cultures, have fun with his friends, do sports (preferably handball), listen to music, among other things.
