Currently a Project Manager at Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, I hold a strong passion for the intersection of SDG 5 – Gender Equality with SDG 13 – Climate Action and SDG 14 – Life Below Water, building knowledge on the nexus between women empowerment, the climate crisis and ocean protection. In early 2022, I was selected to represent Portugal for a one-year mandate at the Congress of the Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe. I was also nominated a Local Pathways Fellow '22.
