He has been reviewer for 14 international journals, in which he is Reviewer Editor for Frontiers in Microbiology and Frontiers in Plant Science. He belongs to the Editorial Board of Magazine da SPM and served on the Advisory Board of Cultures magazine (2013-2018). He organized or be part of the team of 11 events / conferences / workshops. He participated in 36 international and national conferences, having presented 18 works orally (and other 4 oral presentations as seminars) and 24 works in poster format. Diogo received 21 awards and/or honors, participated as PhD Student Fellow in 1 project, Pos-doctoral Fellow in 1 project, Principal investigator in 5 projects, Research Fellow in 2 projects and Researcher in 12 projects (National and Regional funds, FCT, European projects, COST Actions). Currently, his research topics are i) Bioprospecting of new bacterial compounds in circular economy perspective; ii) Environmental Microbiology focused on study of Microbiomes (endophytic, from frogs' skin, bees' gut, from soils); iii) Biological Control (nematicidal and fungicide roles); iv) Biodiversity and microbial ecology from diverse environments; v) Bacterial genome mining and Phylogenomics; and vi) Taxonomy (description of new bacterial species). Diogo has teaching experience with undergraduate and master classes at University of Coimbra and he was trainer on Training School at CIHEAM-IAMB, Bari, Italy. He supervised 3 MSc dissertation, 3 BSc projects, 1BSc project ongoing and co-supervised 1 BSc project, and have been mentor other BSc, MSc and PhD students. He was also member of juries to award research grants in the scope of scientific projects, member of a jury of masters, member of online jury of postdocs week, as well as member in juries in the selection of Young Ambassadors of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM). At the University of Coimbra, he was member of the Projects and Interdisciplinarity Committee of the Institute for Interdisciplinary Research. Diogo is member of Smart Waste Portugal Young Professionals. Diogo have been a member of the Portuguese Society of Microbiology since 2009 and of ASM since 2011. Between 2013 and 2016 he has served as the ASM Young Ambassador of Science to Portugal. In that period, he contacted with several microbiology groups from North to South of Portugal, organized 4 workshops/conferences in Aveiro, Coimbra and Évora. He was Chair of the Young Leaders Circle of ASM (2016-2017) as well as a member of the Advisory Board of ASM (2016-2017).
