Maria Burguete received her Ph.D. in History of Science (contemporary chemistry) from Ludwig Maximilians University at Munich, Germany (2000). She was the very first biochemist to graduate from the Faculty of Sciences in Lisbon (1982), after completing a Bachelor Degree in Chemical Engineering (1979) at the Lisbon Higher Institute of Engineering (ISEL). She is a scientist with teaching and research experience in a wide variety of scientific fields. This diversity enhanced the development of both her interdisciplinarity and a transdisciplinarity. She is now a scientist at Bento da Rocha Cabral in Portugal. She has published seven scientific books and five poetry books, and over 25 scientific papers mostly in history and philosophy of science.
