I have a background as a Veterinarian, MSc in Veterinary Public Health and PhD in the field of antimicrobial resistance from the University of Copenhagen. I come from Portugal and I have worked for about 18 years in Microbiology performing veterinary diagnostic, research, teaching and international networking. My main field is antimicrobial resistance and susceptibility testing. Presently I am working as Associate Professor at Copenhagen University and Statens Serum Institute on early phase antimicrobial development.
