She is the Chair of the Food- and Water-borne Infections Study Group from the prestigious European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID), a trusted scientific reviewer from ESCMID, a member of the UCIBIO Communication Working Group, and an Editor of Journal of Global Antimicrobial Resistance. She works in the field of Health Sciences and Infectious Diseases and develops research in Antimicrobial Resistance for >15 years. She published 51 articles (four reviews) in international peer-reviewed indexed journals of high-impact and 3 international book chapters (H-index 22; ~1718 citations; Google Scholar - Ana R. Freitas). She has sound international networking as demonstrated by her numerous collaborative papers with >100 different co-authors from 16 countries on 4 continents and the regular invitation to act as a referee in high-impact journals covering diverse knowledge areas related to Infectious Diseases and Microbiology (publons.com/a/1230597/). Acted as reviewer or expert for different European agencies (EFSA) or research centers. Co-edited 4 special issues on Antibiotic Resistance and co-organized international scientific events. She was/is supervisor/co-supervisor of national students at different levels (2 Ph.D., 2 MSc, 3 Erasmus, 19 undergraduate) and supervise the training of 3 international Ph.D. (Tunisia, Czechia) and Master (Brasil) thesis. She successfully participated in 12 proposals for attracting national (FCT, BIP Proof, UP) and international (EU, ESCMID) funding (2 as a PI). She has more than 100 communications (oral and posters) in prestigious national and international congresses and acted as lecturer/speaker in 14 oral presentations. She was granted 2 FCT fellowships (BD and BPD), one CEEC-FCT researcher contract, 8 awards/distinctions, and 13 congress grants. Holds the HiTech 2019 program organized by the Porto Business School in collaboration with North Caroline State University and is integrated into relevant Microbiology societies/groups (ECCMID, ESGEM, EFWISG, SPM). She coordinated the implementation of the service-learning MicroMundo@UPorto project (involving university and school students) in Portugal through the University of Porto.
