Her research is mainly in Travel Medicine. She developed studies on i) the quality of the advice given to travellers by family doctors, pharmacists, travel agents, and on the quality of travel consultations on aspects related to the structure, process and outcomes of these consultations; ii) studies on adherence to malaria chemoprophylaxis; iii) studies on knowledge, attitudes and literacy in tuberculosis and vaccination of travellers and migrants in Portugal; iv) studies on knowledge, attitudes and practices for the prevention of arboviruses; v) studies on health problems during and after travel; vi) studies on nursing in travel medicine, in Portugal. She also studied infections by dermatophytes in migrant populations living in slums on the outskirts of Lisbon and participated in studies on antiplasmodium antibodies in individuals with previous stays in malaria endemic areas. Studies are underway on the use of genetically modified mosquitoes to prevent arboviruses and on knowledge, attitudes and preventive practices of infection in migrants visiting their families (VFR).
