I am very curious about the application of mathematical models to the description and prediction of biological phenomena. I am currently specifically interested in the tools developed in the field of population genetics with the objective of constructing a simple model on the evolution of cancer cells (a summer project in collaboration with Mónica Bettencourt Dias).

I am a third year physics student at Instituto Superior Técnico and I will be starting my master’s this year in theoretical physics/applied mathematics at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne as part of an exchange program.
