Carla Pinheiro is Assistant Professor at FCT NOVA since 2012. As a plant biologist, she is interested in the characterization of the genetic diversity of forest and agricultural species. Her main focus of research is the modulation of plant carbon metabolism (photosynthesis, primary metabolism, cellular distribution) by multiple stressors as well as on its effects on seed development, yield and nutritional quality. Carla Pinheiro makes use of multiscale approaches to plant growth and productivity by using physiological, biochemical and omic´s tools.
