She is currently Coordinator of the Center for Functional Ecology - science for people and the planet (cfe.uc.pt), Scientific Coordinator of FitoLab - Phytosanitary Laboratory of the Pedro Nunes Institute (https://www.ipn.pt/ laboratory / FITOLAB), and is part of the Scientific Council of the Department of Life Sciences of the University of Coimbra. The scientific areas of specialty are related to: Ecology; Mediterranean Ecosystems; Forest and Agriculture; Ecology and Management of exotic and invasive species; Conservation of Nature, Biodiversity; Physiology of the tree; Diversity of Plants and Fungi; Tolerance to Stress and Bioremediation; Environmental policy; Bioenergy; Conservation of Nature; Microbial ecology; Ecology and Society. She coordinated or participated in several national and international projects and consortia, including the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. Supervised or co-supervised 33 doctoral dissertations and 19 master's theses. She is the author of more than 200 indexed international scientific publications and several publications promoting and disseminating science. She publishes regularly in the national and regional press, in particular on environment, territories and society, planning and development policies based on knowledge (https://www.publico.pt/autor/helena-freitas; http: //www.industriaeambiente .pt / authors / helena-freitas /).
