Ana Satiro has a MA in History, specialization in Civilizations of Middle East and Ancient Asia, by School of Social Sciences and Humanities (FCSH) of NOVA University of Lisbon, with a dissertation entitled "Between Hattusa and Babylon: the circulation of magical-medicinal knowledge between the 14th and the 13th centuries BC." She aimed at studying the processes of reception and transmission of magical-medicinal knowledge between these two great powers of ancient western Asia with the aim of highlighting a syncretic and, to a certain extent, original product, resulting from multiple transfer processes and cultural contacts. She integrated organizing committees for several activities, from events directed to the general public to scientific encounters at NOVA-FCSH, especially related to ancient Mesopotamia. She had a research internship under 4-OCEANS: Human History of Marine Life ERC - Grant Agreement No. 951649 (2022), and currently she integrates the research team of the exploratory project WATERS (CHAM, NOVA FCSH), being responsible for gathering and analysing material and iconographic data. Since 2023 she is a research assistant at CHAM- Centre for Humanities, NOVA FCSH & UAc, integrating the research group Environment, Interactions and Globalization which focuses on the historical processes of interaction between people and nature in different geographical and temporal contexts. Her research interests include History of Science and Medicine, namely the transmission of magical-medicinal knowledge in ancient western Asia (with/by the Mesopotamian specialists).
