I have always been passionate about life sciences and the ability to apply our understanding to everyday life use. I have obtained a doctoral degree in Biochemistry and Biotechnology, and now I would like to contribute with my analytical and critical skills to evidence-based agencies in order to optimize health care. I am an ambitious and energetic person who has developed a responsible and mature approach to any challenge. As a scientific researcher, I have excelled in working independently to achieve objectives on time and with precision. As a flexible person, I have enjoyed cooperating in a team to obtain common objectives with a high degree of excellence. Profile on Research Gate:
