She started working on mycotoxins analysis, was responsible for mycotoxin quality control and analytical method validation. She develops studies on the harmonized in vitro digestion method and now she is working on the determination of mycotoxins biomarkers in food and biological fluids by LC-MS/MS to assess the exposure of Portuguese population. She participates in national (MYCOMIX) and international projects (RiskBenefit4EU, EFSA: HBM4EU, Horizon 2020), co-supervises MSc thesis and collaborates in conference organization.
