Catarina Afonso


Hi all,
this is where you can find a short version of my Curriculum Vitae. I was born in April in the 80's and I'm daughter of a sociologist and a secretarian. Both my parents are Portuguese, but they managed to have me in São Paulo (Brasil), where I've lived only until the age of 1 year.I've grown in Braga, the third biggest city of Portugal. I also took my first degree there, at University of Minho. Basically, I'm an ecologist with broad interests. Lately, I've been working with invasive plant species, but I've also worked as a teacher and Sciences & Environment promoter.
