Human biologist and food scientist. I did my PhD in viral metagenomics to study the viruses present in water and food. I've been working with environmental samples (sewage, reclaimed water, food samples) and clinical samples (sera and feces). I am interested in the discovery of novel viral species which might infect human and other vertebrates. Nowadays, I am enrolled in the EU-FORA program from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
