Ivone Vaz-Moreira graduated in Biochemistry and doctor in Biotechnology with specialization in Microbiology. Her research is focused in Environmental Microbiology, associated with aquatic habitats and their intersections with soil/sediments, plants, animals, and finally humans; including the study of the bacterial diversity with particular emphasis on the urban water cycle and the potential of antibiotic resistance dissemination from aquatic environments. In 2014, she was considered one of the ten bacterial taxonomists in Portugal. Academic editor of PlosOne journal and member of the editorial board of the IJERPH.
She has experience in different methodologies, from most classical microbiology methods till last generation Microbiology and Molecular Biology methods, as the use of bioinformatics tools for metagenomic analyses.
