Personal profile


I am a doctor of veterinary medicine by education, and I have worked since 2010 as an epidemiologist in the field of food safety. In 2013, I completed my PhD on the subject of interpretation of quantitative microbial data for risk assessment, with a special focus on variability and uncertainty in the predictions of foodborne disease. Since 2014, my work is mainly focused on the occurrence of antimicrobial resistance in animals and the transmission of resistance to humans. My main tasks involve the implementation and evaluation of new methods for the application of genomics data in source-attribution, risk assessment and surveillance.

I enjoy teaching and have had the opportunity to lecture quantitative microbial risk assessment in several international courses under the scope of the European Commission’s programs EDES and BTSF, as well as for Master and PhD  students in DTU’s QMRA summer school. I also coordinated and implemented a successful Massive Open Online Course on the use of metagenomics for surveillance of pathogens and antimicrobial resistance (https://coursera.org/learn/metagenomics).

I have been seconded to three different international research institutions: Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety (2009), Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture - Food Safety Centre - University of Tasmania (2012) and Complutense University of Madrid – Department of Animal Health (2015).
