Computing Engineering(2010 - Now)
Master in Informatics and Computing Engineering at Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto
At college I have learned a lot of programming languages (from C++ and Java to Prolog, PHP and everything in between). I have always tried to push myself and pick classes for their appeal rather than to go for an easy grade. Some of these classes included Parallel Computing, Critical Systems, Network and System Services, Data Mining, Mobile Computing and Computer Vision.
Molecular Physiology of Plants(2010)
Masters in Molecular physiology of Plants at Faculdade de Ciências do Porto e Universidade do Minho
I gave this a shot before admitting to myself that I belonged to engineering. I ended up leaving mid-semester so I could join FEUP.
Biochemistry(2006 - 2009)
First Degree in Biochemistry at Faculdade de Ciências do Porto and Instituto de Ciências Biomédicas Abel Salazar
This is where it all started. I went into this course with high expectations and wanting to improve my knowledge on plants. Even though this degree was mostly orientated to human/medical biochemistry I bare no regrets on my decision. I ended up doing my (short) internship in a biology lab where I tried to create a genetically altered tobacco plant that produced a protein from human saliva. Pretty cool right? You can download my final report here (in Portuguese).
I have loved ants since I was a kid. I had some ant colonies in the past but now I don't have the space or conditions. Did you know that male and fertile female ants have wings for a short time so they can mate in the air? How can you not love those little devils...
This hobby is as old as the last one. I started by keeping some bonsais in my parents and as I grew up i moved onto medicinal and aromatic plants. At the moment due to lack of space I only keep a couple of aromatics which I use on the kitchen.
I started to love to cook when I moved out and have been loving every bit of it. I have been learning with friends and family and fine tuning it with the help of a little thing called the internet. If you behave I might even invite you for a nice gourmet lunch.
This is one of my newest hobbies. I know the very basics of photography thanks to a couple of friends that work in the business and I find it fascinating. In the long run I expect this skill to help me improve my web design.
