Research Student, University of Maryland, Academic Year 2014/2015

Someone asked me: Why in the world did you choose Baltimore as the place of your Fulbright Research?

After one year, I can say because it was the best choice. Jointly with the research objective, the intercultural environment at UMBC allowed me to observe closely what is the American melting pot and to come back to Portugal with a clearer understanding of the American culture and how scientific productivity can benefit from that cultural interchange.
One of the best, most beautiful and productive years!
