Inês Paciência is graduated in Clinical Analysis and Public Health by Lisbon School of Health Technology, and obtained a Master Degree in Public Health by the University of Porto Medical School. She completed her PhD in Biomedical Sciences at ICBAS with the project “Determinants of paediatric asthma: a three-level approach”.
She started her professional activity in 2011 as a research fellow, at the Laboratory of Indoor Air Quality, where she integrated several national and international projects, whose main objectives were related to the assessment of the impact of exposure to indoor air in different settings on asthma and allergic diseases.
Inês also awarded an EAACI Research Fellowship in 2018, “How indoor environment can shape human microbiome: culture-independent approaches” carried out at Helsinki, where she had the opportunity to be involved on the methodology of microbiome analysis. Inês is a member of the Epidemiology of Allergic Conditions laboratory (ITR, Laboratory for Integrative and Translational Research in Population Health).
In 2021 Inês was elected as a Board Member of the One Health Workgroup for the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. She is currently a Post-doc at the Center for Environmental and Respiratory Health Research (CERH) in Oulu, Finland.
Her main research interests are the impact of environmental determinants on allergic diseases and asthma, namely the dynamic interaction between indoor environment and neighborhood (green and built spaces, land use, biodiversity) on the development of asthma in children.
