PhD in the field of pathology (Tierärztliche Hochschule Hannover, Germany)
Her research lines relate to Anatomic Pathology in marine and terrestrial species, antibiotic resistance and emerging diseases in domestic animals and wildlife (neosporosis, Q-fever, Johne’s disease), and lately to different invasive species (mink, mongooses and lionfish) and corals. Her favorite projects involve the study of the interphase between wild and domestic animals regarding antibiotic resistance in terrestrial and aquatic species. She has published on the topics of antibiotic resistance, fish pathology, invasive species and forensic medicine.
