- PhD in Chemistry, with a degree in English language and specialization in Translation. I have been a teacher of English and techniques of translation for some years. As a translator I usually work with texts in chemistry, medical/pharmaceutical sciences,engineering and related areas.

- Familiar with Spanish and European Portuguese texts since my childhod, I feel comfortable in translating from Spanish and in adapting material written in EU-PT into BR-PT, too.

- about 20 years experience as a Natural Products Chemist at brazilian universities, where I have developed projects in the areas of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, phytochemistry and computational chemistry.

- Chemist/Researcher at the Brazilian Nuclear Energy Commission (CNEN), since 2002. In CNEN I have worked at the department of Chemistry (analytical chemistry - mineral and environmental material), the Medical Physics department (biological effects of ionizing radiation), and the Technological Innovation Office (mainly intellectual property matters). Currently, I am in charge of the courses on Radiation Protection at CDTN, one of the research & technology development institutes of CNEN.

- Freelance translator since 2001, I have translated more than 2,000,000 words and proofread lots of documents. I translate/proofread mainly medical/pharmaceutical protocols on new drugs, clinical studies documents and scientific papers. I also translate patent documents on chemistry, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals; technical manuals on medical equipments and devices, brochures and product information sheets of chemical products, etc.
