RESEARCH INTERESTES

My research interests are in whole genome sequencing typing and epidemiology, short and long time evolution in bacterial genomes and population structure of mainly food pathogens. Of scientific highlights were linking the evaluation of using WGS in sub-typing and outbreak detection of Salmonella enterica published in BMC Genomics; “Genomic variation in Salmonella enterica core genes for epidemiological typing” and PLOS One; “Evaluation of Whole Genome Sequencing for Outbreak Detection of Salmonella enterica” and the discovery of a virulent fragment unique to S. Typhimurium ST313 and S. Dublin published in PLOS One; “The role of the st313-td gene in virulence of Salmonella Typhimurium ST313”. In addition, a study on short-term evolution and global epidemiology of S. Typhimurium DT104 will soon be published in a peer reviewed international journal.

I am author of 11 peer-reviewed published in international refereed journals; 5 as first author.  I have conducted research with 53 scientists in 18 countries.
