About Me

I am a reseracher working on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in bacteria. These includes the study of evolution and emergence of multidrug resistant bacteria, tracking dissemination routes of AMR bacteria both at national and international level and study AMR factors in a One Health approach. We sudy AMR in hospitals but also in other sectors such as veterinary settings, food processing chain and the environment. We have expertise in genomics, metagenomics and genome-wide association studies (GWAS). We are currently involved in a project assessing the dissemination of AMR in the pig processing chain.

We have also expertise in staphylococci molecular epidemiology and evolution, including both Staphylococcus aureus and coagulase-negative staphylococci such as Staphylococcus epidermidis. In this regard we are particulary interestied in understanding the mechanisms that are in the frontier between health and disease of these opportunistic pathogens.

We have easy access to samples from Hospitals and animal production settings in Portugal.
