Research Interests
1. Assessment of oxidative stress resistance in pathogenic bacteria, as well as, their potential pathogenicity. Identification of the tolerance resistance pathways/mechanisms to develop a strategy against pathogenic bacteria (Neisseria and E.coli) (Transcriptomics, biological assays).
2. Heterologous/Homologous expression of metalloproteins (cytochromes). Biochemical characterization (spectroscopy and kinetic assays).

Thesis title: Biochemical and physiological insights into the bacterial cytochrome c peroxidase from Escherichia coli
Supervisors: Sofia R. Pauleta (UCIBIO, FCT-UNL); Bart Devreese (Ghent University, Belgium).
