Short Bio.

Since 2004 I have been leading the Evolutionary Biology group at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência in Oeiras, Portugal, where I also currently hold the position of Deputy Director of Science. I graduated in Physics from the Technical University in Lisbon (IST) and received a PhD in Evolutionary Genetics with Brian Charlesworth from the University of Edinburgh (2002). In 2010 I won the ERC Starting Grant and in 2015 the FCT Investigator Consolidator Grant. I am the founder of the Portuguese Society for Evolutionary Biology, since 2014 a panel member of the ERC grants evaluation and in 2017 I was elected a member of the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO).
