I started my research career as an undergrad in antimicrobial resistance, studying the importance of antibiotics for selecting clinically relevant resistant bacteria. With time, this experience evolved to a passion for performing training abroad at Rámon & Cajal Hospital in Madrid, and work in a worldwide collaborative to investigate if biocide use in the food chain would result in a clinically relevant increase of antibiotic resistance in human pathogens. I did my PhD (funded by an awarded FCT fellowship) in Pharmaceutical Sciences - Microbiology Speciality at Porto University (2012-2016), where I explored the impact of heavy metals in the maintenance and persistence of multidrug-resistant bacteria using experimental and computational approaches. During this period, I served as a researcher in diverse national and international collaborative projects. These partnerships included an awarded ESCMID Research Grants with the participation of international laboratories, and a food safety project in collaboration with the industry. Between 2016-2018 I worked at the UCIBIO/REQUIMTE Associated Laboratory using high-throughput technologies and bioinformatics to study antimicrobials' role in the evolution of multidrug-resistant bacteria. This experience allowed me to see at first-hand the full potential of using these next-generation tools in infectious diseases. In 2017, I was involved in a worldwide recognized outreach activity focused on MicroMundo@UPorto implementation in Portugal, an innovative Citizen Science project in the Microbiology field. Since December 2018, I have moved outside my PhD (co)supervisor lab and I was awarded a Junior Research contract to work on an international collaborative project at the Center for Innovative Biomedicine and Biotechnology. I am developing research at the front line of computational biology by integrating clinical and multiomics data to develop more targeted therapies for diseases with a high and regressive socio-economic burden (cancer, infectious diseases). This position has allowed me to create the basis for the exciting research that I want to do soon, consolidate new national and international collaborations, and demonstrate the importance of translational research to help solve current and future human health problems. As the result of the active participation in several national and international collaborative initiatives/projects, I published 1 book and 2 chapters without my PhD (co)supervisors, as well as 24 ISI papers (90%-Q1, H-index=13; i10-index=14; >800 citations-GS). I have been responsible for graduated and undergraduate students co-supervision, being actively implicated in international raising funds activities. I have more than 90 communications (oral and poster), received 18 awards, and reviewed for 12 international peer-review journals. Currently, I am an invited guest-editor in a Special Issue of Pathogens as well as a member of their Editorial Board, being also frequently invited as a jury in scientific meetings and academic degrees. Since 2019, I’m officially an Invited Assistant Professor teaching microbiology (University of Algarve) and bioinformatics (University of Coimbra).
