Hi. I'm a PhD student at LaSIGE, Faculdade de Ciências, Universidade de Lisboa. I'm enrolled in the BioSys PhD programme and my project is about disease network discovery using text mining.


My research work is mainly focused on text mining applied to biomedical text, such as scientific papers, patents and electronic health records. I apply machine learning algorithms and integrate the extracted information with external ontologies.


I started developing IICE - Identifying Interactions between Chemical Entities for my master's thesis. We have used it to participate on the BioCreative V CHEMDNER task. Since the web tool serves only for demonstration purposes, I am working on a REST API to open the system to the community.
