Future Farming Systems - Epidemiology Research Unit
I qualified as a veterinary from Porto University in 2002. While I was working as a clinician in practice, I did a Master in Public Heath in Lisbon Technical University (2005), where I developed work in paratuberculosis in dairy cattle. I finished my PhD in January 2014 and it consisted in the study of Salmonella in swine in Portugal – risk characterization and development of a simulation model of disease transmission in swine herds.
I am currently involved in several projects related to the pig sector and other livestock species. I am the ERU species-expert for pigs and contribute expertise to the existing EPIC COE.
My current research interests are:
I have worked on Porto University, from 2007 to 2012, helping in the lecturing of the following modules: 1) Biostatistics for the Human and Veterinary Medicine degree, 2) Epidemiology, and 3) Public Health, both for Veterinary Medicine degree.
I taught introductory courses to statistics for NHS Highland and epidemiology applied to practice to vets.
