Since completing my PhD in cell biology at the university of Coimbra, based on my research at McGill University, I’ve spent the past 11 years building my career in the medical communication and linguistic services industry.
After my PhD, I worked for 4 years as a Medical Writer in a medical communication agency, perfecting my writing skills and creating content for pharmaceutical sales training materials covering a wide range of therapeutic areas.
I have since started my own business offering linguistic services – translation, revision, and connected services – in the biomedical domain.
All these years, I've kept in contact with the PhD community, mainly by accepting invitations to speak to students and to take part in PhD-oriented career panels.
This connection with the community led me to launch the Papa PhD podcast in the summer of 2019.
Producing and hosting Papa PhD is a passion project through which I aim to share the different ways people have juggled professional and personal life after completing their PhD with PhD researchers around the world.
Thank you for your support!😀
