João Botelho

Postdoctoral Researcher, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology

João Botelho is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Antimicrobial Resistance Evolution at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Germany. His research is focused on the crossroads of mobile genetic elements and antibiotic resistance. João completed his PhD in 2018 at the University of Porto in Portugal, in which he was using experimental and computational approaches to study mobilization events of antimicrobial resistance genes in Pseudomonas aeruginosa. João is currently using computational and experimental approaches to tackle antibiotic resistance in an evolutionary context.
