The conference season continues and I'm now in Spain, attending the EMBO Bacterial Networks (BacNet17) meeting, in lovely Sant Feliu de Guixols

After a lovely family vacation in Greece, I got back to London for a few hours - enough only to repack my bag and get soaked with the pouring rain. Luckily I'm now back to sunny weather in Sant Feliu de Guixols, near Barcelona, for the BacNet 17. The program looks busy but great, the setting spectacular, so it promises to be quite a nice week.

If you're also around, come say hi!

Senior Editor, Nature Microbiology

I'm a senior editor at Nature Microbiology, interested in all things bacteria, virus, archaea, fungi and parasites (but I mostly handled articles focusing on bacterial physiology, evolution, parasites and archaea). Before joining Nature, I studied biochemistry at the University of Porto, Portugal, as an undergrad; and was a grad student and post-doc in the labs of Margarida Correia-Neves (ICVS, Braga, Portugal), Sam Behar (Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, and then at UMass Medical School, Worcester, MA) and Christophe Benoist (at Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA), where I studied multiple aspects of immunity to tuberculosis.

The conference was busy but exceptionally well planned with considerable breaks to wind and unwind. The presence of pioneers and peers of the bacterial network community gave deep insights.
