Have been working in the diarrhoeal diseases research area, with focus for enteric virus infections, with the application of molecular biology techniques for diagnosis, monitoring infection and track virus evolution. Her research objectives are to evaluate the impact of rotavirus vaccination on the burden of the diarrhoeal disease and rotavirus strain diversity, among children living in a rural area of Mozambique, a low income country.
