Main research interests

  • NMR spectroscopy applied to the study of intermolecular interactions in chemical and biochemical systems
  • The study of intermolecular interactions in non-conventional solvents (ionic liquids and CO2) to rationalize solvation phenomena
  • The study of intermolecular interactions in biological systems for the rationalization of biocatalysis or in the context of drug design
  • Development of NMR methods to study molecular interactions in complex systems, in particular high pressure NMR, diffusion NMR and techniques for the study of protein-ligand interactions


  • PhD in Chemistry, Universidade Nova de Lisboa (1999)
