Armanda Teixeira Gomes obtained her Master's Degree in Analytical Clinical and Forensic Toxicology in 2014 at the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Porto (FFUP) and graduated in Chemistry in 2012 from the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto (FCUP). The interest in biomedical research boosted her academic career leading her to follow a complementary formation in Biology, which was followed by a master's degree in Analytical Clinical and Forensic Toxicology. Throughout her master's degree, she had her first contact with the human health-environment paradigm, which led to the choice of a dissertation topic with direct application to a real-life situation. She is currently a PhD student in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Porto (ICBAS), developing her research at the Epidemiology Research Unit (EPIUnit) of the Institute of Public Health of the University of Porto (ISPUP) and at the National Institute of Health Doctor Ricardo Jorge, at Environmental Health Department. Armanda was recently awarded with a PhD grant (Ref. SFRH/BD/121802/2016) by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT). Her main interests nowadays are human biomonitoring studies, toxicology and molecular epidemiology and genetics. Although still at the beginning of her research career, she has grown up in this area in recent years, having several publications and participating in several scientific meetings in which she presented her work to the scientific community.
