Welcome to the team, Joana!

This week, we welcome Joana to our lab! She holds a bachelor in Biochemistry from FCT NOVA and is now doing the final thesis within the MSc in Biotechnology.

Joana will be working in "Odorant-binding proteins for artificial olfaction and fast diagnostics" within the #SCENT_project. Her main goal is to learn more about the world of biosensors as an emergent technology and what they could bring to mankind.

About her interests, Joana likes animals and adopted a little dog named Kiko. She enjoys rock and 80s music, science fiction movies, and anything from Marvel. She also loves the countryside, where she can spend time with her family and friends.
