I was born in the US but grew up in Porto, Portugal, where I did my undergraduate degree in Microbiology. In 2003, I received my PhD from Imperial College London (UK) and then moved to France, where I spent the past 20 years studying how bacterial pathogens cause disease. In August 2023, I arrived at UW-Madison as an Associate Professor of Immunology of Infectious Diseases at the School of Veterinary Medicine.
Suzana’s talks can also be given in Portuguese, French, and Spanish.
