Early life microbiota-host interactions
I studied BSc Microbiology and MSc Food Biotechnology.
After my masters I worked in industry and performed several internships in different research centers, including Teagasc (Dublin), IDIS (Santiago de Compostela) and Glasgow University.
Within the years I became more and more interested about how bacteria interact with our body to produce disease and started working as a Biomedical Scientist in NNUH, where I could learn a lot about clinical microbiology and worked through COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, my main interest it is to grow as a researcher, starting with my Project Scientist position in Quadram, where I will be cooperating with different projects, mainly focus in finding antibiotic resistances in preterm microbiota.
My main research interests are antibiotic resistances, microbiome and obesity.
