Cátia Vanessa Queijo Brito obtained her PhD title in Agricultural Production Chains - From Fork to Farm (Doctoral Program AgriChains) in January 2019 from the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro (UTAD) in association with University of Minho (UM), Portugal. In UTAD, finished the Master’s degree in Environmental Engineering in July 2012 and the Bachelor’s degree in Biology in December 2009. She is a research fellow at the Centre for the Research and Technology of Agro-Environmental and Biological Sciences (CITAB). She has 9 articles in journals (Q1), 1 book chapter published by Springer-Verlag, 1 conference paper, 18 conference abstracts and 62 communications in scientific conferences. She supervised 1 final work for graduation course and co-supervisor of one more. She also participated in the jury of two academic bachelor’s degrees. She had a grant for PhD course and was research fellow in 3 projects. She works in the areas of Agrarian and Natural Sciences with emphasis on Agriculture, Plant Production and Protection, Agronomy, Biology, Biochemistry and Environmental Sciences. To highlight the skills and expertise in the following topic’s: agronomic crops sustainability, plant physiology, water relations, photosynthesis, plant biochemistry, oxidative stress, olive growing, olive oil quality, abiotic stresses, drought, climate change mitigation and adaptation measures, nocturnal transpiration, cover crops, kaolin, salicylic acid. She has made national and international mobilities, to the University of Gdansk (Poland), the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Porto (Portugal) and the University of Oviedo (Spain). She also performed courses related with scientific writing, trainee for trainers and plant protection products.
