I joined the Hampstead team in January 2021. I am a veterinary surgeon with a passion for science, animals and people. I concluded my studies in Veterinary Medicine at the Universidade de Évora, Portugal, followed by a PhD in Biomedical Sciences from the Freie Universität Berlin, Germany. I have a genuine interest in veterinary internal medicine, anatomy, physiology and infectious diseases. Coming from a multicultural background, I am fluent in five major European languages, including English, German and Spanish. In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis with friends, exercising outdoors, travelling and reading sci-fi novels.
