Valéria Custódio

Valéria is a PhD student from the Graduate Program Science for Development, since 2016

Valéria Custódio holds a BSc in Biology from Universidade de Aveiro and an MSc in Biochemistry from Universidade de Coimbra, and she’s currently a PhD student at ITQB-NOVA.

During her BSc, Valéria studied the bacterial composition of the air and their resistance to antibiotics and as an exchange student at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Valéria was involved in the identification of magnetosome from magnetotactic bacteria. In her MSc, Valéria studied the interactions between phytopathogens and phytoprotectors isolated from vineyards and the bacteria potential as biocontrol. 

Currently, in her Ph.D., Valéria is using a holistic approach, that combine soil ionome, soil microbiome composition and plant microbiota and nutrition to increase plant performance in response to abiotic stressors (water scarcity and nutrient deficiency).
