Ana Cação is a transdisciplinary designer. She graduated in Law from the University of Coimbra in 2012, and practiced law for a few years. Her interest in design led her to take a degree in Interior and Spatial Design at Caldas da Rainha School of Arts and Design, which she completed in 2021, continuing on to a Masters in Product Design, of which she completed the first year. In 2022 she took a break from this master’s to join the Master in Design for Health and Well-Being, a pioneer in Portugal, in the same school.

Currently, she is a research fellow at LiDA – Laboratório de Investigação em Design e Artes at Politécnico de Leiria. She is also part of a co-creation project for hospital innovation, Fast Track, which consists of a partnership between the University of Evora and the Espírito Santo Hospital.

From her wide range of interests, environment design, design for health and well-being, communication, and photography are of particular relevance.
