Past Experience

  • Research fellow
    March 2016 --- June 2016

  • PhD student
    January 2012 --- February 2015
    Research Project on Verocytotoxin producing E. coli (VTEC, including strains belonging to serotypes O157:H7, O104:H4). Investigation of virulence factors carried by mobile genetic elements (MGEs), such as bacteriophages.

  • PhD Visiting Student
    January 2014 --- February 2014
    Research Project: Investigation of differences in the Verocytotoxin-producing Escherichia coli (VTEC) colonization mechanism between the animal reservoir and the human host using an in vitro system simulating the conditions of the gastro-intestinal tract . Short-term mission funded by MedVetNet. Cell culturing experience.

  • PhD Visiting Student
    September 2013 --- October 2013
    Investigation on the metabolomics of Verocytotoxin-Producing Escherichia coli (VTEC) O157 (Biolog Platform).

  • PhD Visiting Student
    September 2012 --- November 2012
    I spent a seven weeks period at the Department of Microbiology of the University of Barcelona as part of my PhD Research Project with the aim to deepen my experience on bacteriophages.

  • Research fellow
    January 2011 --- December 2011
    Project on the “screening by PCR of a panel of VTEC O157 strains from different sources and belonging to several phagetypes for the presence of polymorfic genomic regions of vtx2-producing phage"
