I am a pharmacist and a conservator-restorer specialized in Preventive Conservation of Graphic Documents and Biodeterioration of Organic Materials. In 2014 I completed a PhD in Conservation Science.
I am presently based as a researcher at the HERCULES Laboratory in Évora University with the project Heritage Keepers: Making Way for Environmental Quality, focused on assessing the working conditions of conservators-restorers to determine the main risks for every speciality, improve their knowledge of mitigation strategies and promote the adoption of more sustainable products.
