Violeta is a specialist in Veterinary Public Health that enjoys working in a multicultural and multidisciplinary environment.

Violeta received her degree in Veterinary Sciences at the University Complutense of Madrid in 2015. Post-graduation, she continued to gain professional training at the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute (UK) in Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and disease control and prevention measures in livestock. She has always been interested in the human-animal interface from a One Health perspective. This led her to complete a Master degree in Public Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (UK) in 2017. After that, Violeta worked in a consultancy for three years (2017-2020) in research and capacity building projects in the areas of AMR, food safety, epidemiology and animal health economics, in collaboration with international organizations, research institutions and national governments. Violeta is a member of the SOUND-Control COST Action “Standardizing Output-based Surveillance to control non-regulated diseases of cattle in the EU” and the RIBMINS COST Action “Risk-based meat inspection and integrated meat safety assurance”. She is a diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Public Health (ECVPH) with a subspeciality in population medicine.

Violeta has been collaborating in theGlobal Burden of Animal Diseases project as part of her PhD and post-doctoral research, led by Professor Paul Torgerson. In her PhD, she assessed the economic impact of the burden of disease and other health problems in backyard chickens in low and middle income countries and predicted the prevalence of disease in this production sector. She continues to work on this area by conducting global disease estimations.
