I'm a Biochemist and Software Developer, specialized in Software Engineer, from Portugal. Nowadays, I mostly work in Web Development.
I support several initiatives to promote Diversity in Tech, Gender Equality and Women Empowerment. Currently, I'm an organizer of the Rails Girls Summer of Code, being an alumna of the 2015 edition and a supervisor of the 2016 and 2017 editions.
I’m a book lover, occasional writer and runner. I love furry animals and, for eight years, I've slaved to these cute guinea pigs. The first time I’ve played Dungeons & Dragons, my character unleashed a plague that destroyed an entire continent. But don’t worry, now I only occasionally destroy a city. Some time ago, I was featured on CNN, alongside Carrie Fisher (scroll down a bit and you'll find me :P). By the way, Han shot first. And Firefly should be watched in the correct order.
