Currently, she is leading the development, implementation and validation of novel Big Data analytical and visualization tools and their integration into operational, web-based, user-friendly platforms such as the Disease BioPortal to more timely support animal health decisions.

Dr. Martínez-López currently teaches mostly graduate courses such as “Applied Epidemiology Problem solving”, “Concepts and Methods in infectious disease surveillance and control”, “Health and Ecological Risk Analysis” and “Spatial Epidemiology”. Those courses are mainly offered to students in the Master of Preventive Veterinary Medicine (MPVM), the Master of Public Health (MPH) and the Graduate Group of Epidemiology (GGE), although other students from other graduate groups are also welcome.
