Cristiano Pedroso-Roussado


I am a multidisciplinary researcher in the fields of life sciences and design. My three main professional areas are: science x creativity x management. During my research activities, I developed a MSc thesis about the neonatal pathogen Streptococcus agalactiae (iMM, Universidade de Lisboa, PT), and a PhD thesis targeting the infant mice gut microbiota in foetal alcohol syndrome disorder context (University of Brighton, UK).
In the intersection of scientific research and industry, I developed work related to fermentation in a Portuguese food company: i) studying Komatagateibacter spp. as a workhorse for the production of compounds of interest; ii) evaluating food quality standards to solve food contaminations; and iii) new product development. Additionally, I held project manager and innovation roles during the same period. In recent years I am developing a framework to facilitate the transfer of knowledge from Nature to help solve human grand challenges, for instance, aiming a more sustainable value chain and resources use. My approach relies on values such as ethics, responsibility, and accountability, and I invest in communicating widely and easily the complex scientific knowledge gathered during my practice.
