CV also participated actively in several national and European research projects (Saltfree, Amphibia, Synchrony, Fenomeno) as well as conducted the laboratorial work of several students: 3 from bachelor, 5 from master and 2 from international internships. CV has been involved in the organization of several actions of science dissemination: the 13th Iberian Congress of Herpetology, the Workshop entitled “Effects of salinization on freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems”, Science Fair (Oliveira do Bairro), Scientific Internships promoted by the "Associação IEC-ALUMNI" (for high school students) and at the moment she is head organizer of the World Water Day’2019 to be held next 22nd march on the Department of Biology, UA. The activities developed by or that CV has been involved, allowed her to establish contacts with means of dissemination such as radio and newspaper.
