I am a portuguese master’s student, currently doing my thesis project at KI, under the supervision of Dr. Amit Kumar in Prof. Agneta Nordberg’s research group. 

I did my bachelor's in Lisbon, Portugal in Biomedical Engineering and I will soon complete my master's in Molecular Bioengineering in University of Porto, Portugal. 

Research description

My master's thesis topic is assessing and understanding reactive astrogliosis in Parkinson’s brain with astroglial tracers BU99008 and Deprenyl. 

Our translational research group focuses on understanding pathological hallmarks of neurological diseases mainly using Positron Emission Tomography technique (PET) radiotracers, which show great clinical power and applicability.
