I am doing a PhD in the Chris Drakeley group under the supervision of Dr. Kevin Tetteh. My project focuses on identifying novel targets of naturally acquired immunity to Plasmodium knowlesi and describing the seroepidemiological context in endemic regions.

Prior to joining LSHTM I obtained a degree in Biology at the Lusofone University of Humanities and Technologies, Portugal, I did my MSc at the London School in Immunology of Infectious Diseases where I worked on "Escherichia coli and the Blood-Brain-Barrier". I was employed as a lab technician in the Department of Immunology and Infection, Faculty of Infectious and Tropical Diseases for Professor Chris Drakeley and Dr. Kevin Tetteh, carrying out the laboratory component of a study aiming to extend the utility of serological markers in predicting malaria transmission intensity, the impact of this on interventions to reduce malaria transmission and spatial mapping of malaria risk.
