Sandra Hilário is graduated in Agronomic Engineering (2012) from the Polytechnic Institute of Viseu, and completed her Master's Degree in Microbiology (2017) and her Ph.D. degree in Biology (specialization in Microbiology) (2023) at the University of Aveiro. Currently, she is a doctorate researcher at Faculty of Sciencies (University of Porto) and Interdisciplinary Centre of Marine and Environmental Research (CIIMAR, UP), developing work on endophytic bacteria isolated from palm trees that hosts the weevils Rhynchophorus ferrugineus (RPW) aiming to develop potencial biofertilizers and novel biocontrol methods based on plasmid insertion targeting RPW genes. Most of her research is focused on microbial diversity, mycology, taxonomy, molecular evolution, phylogenetics, plant physiology and biochemistry, bioinformatics and fungal genomics. During her academic path, she took part in national and international conferences where she authored and co-authored 8 posters and 10 oral communications, wining 2 awards for best oral communication. She attended 4 advanced courses and was invited as a speaker in 1 advanced course in "Bioinformatics for Microbiologists" and in classes of undergraduate (Phytopathology discipline) and master students (Evolution and Microbial Diversity discipline). Since 2019, she has published 22 articles (10 as 1st author) in international peer reviewed journals and 2 encyclopedia entries. The recognition of her work is supported by more than 140 citations and an h-index of 7. She is also an invited reviewer in 14 international journals, co-guest editor for Microorganisms (MDPI) and assistant editor for Frontiers in Fungal Biology (Frontiers Media S.A.). Tutored and gave assistance to 5 MSc students, 1 PhD and 3 undergraduate students. She was also awarded with an honorable mention by the Portuguese Society of Microbiology and an Early Career Scientist Grant offered by the Federation of European Microbiological Societies.
