I graduated in Chemistry. I attended an Erasmus exchange program in the University of Florence (Italy) for 9 months. I also obtained a collaboration scholarship from the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science to collaborate with the research group of coordination chemistry, organometallic and photochemical in the University of Almería. In 2012, I got my Master (M.Sc.) in Applied Advanced Chemistry in the same university. In 2013, I started my PhD research based on metabolomics studies of agro-food products derived from grapevines in the Technical University of Bari (Italy) thanks to a “Fondo Giovani” Scholarship offered by the same University. During my PhD, I carried out a 6-months research period in the University of Leiden (Netherlands) under the supervision of Prof. Young Hae Choi. I finished my PhD in may 2016. Its title was "Metabolomics in viticulture: a combined NMR and MS study of grapes, leaves and wines". After my PhD, I started a pos-doc position in the University of Almeria in the group of Prof. Ignacio Fernandez in the metabolomics field.

Dr. Ana Abreu


2010, BSc in Bioengineering at university of Porto
2013, Master in Biological Engineering at university of Porto
2015, Two years in the Institute of Biology of Leiden (Netherlands)
2016, Guest researcher at Erasmus Medical Center (Rotterdam)
2017, PhD in Chemical and Biological Engineering

Research interests:  NMR methodology, NMR metabolomics

I was graduated in Bioengineering and did a master in Biological Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP). I did my PhD in Chemical and Biological Engineering also at FEUP in collaboration with the Institute of Biology of Leiden (IBL) in Netherlands, where I spent two years. During this time, I was also a guest researcher at Erasmus Medical Center (in Rotterdam). My reseach and collaborative projects resulted in 18 publications in peer reviewed journals and two book chapters, focusing on antibiotic-resistant bacteria, biofilm control, desinfection, plant defense systems and NMR metabolomics. " After my PhD I joined the group of Prof. Ignacio Fernández as posdoctoral researcher, where I am starting to develop new lines in metabolomics, all of them in close relation with agricultural issues.
