Bachelor in Biological Sciences at Universidade de São Paulo and MsC in Zoology in the same institution. Member of the Laboratory of Sensory Ecology and Arthropods Behavior (LESCA-EACH-USP). Internship at Giribet's Laboratory, at the department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology-Harvard University (2012 and 2014). Internship at Ernst Moritz Arndt Universität Greifswald, Germany (2015). My current research project involves several aspects of the sensory and glandular morphology in harvestmen of the suborder Laniatores (Arachnida, Opiliones). At present my main interests are chemoreceptors, hygroreceptors, and the use of phylogenetic tools to infer morphological evolution. Check more about the other projects in the lab, at my advisor's lab website, Prof. Dr. Rodrigo Willemart. http://each.uspnet.usp.br/willemart/ (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Recent behavioral studies have shown that harvestmen of the suborder Laniatores can detect odors, but no olfactory receptor has yet been identified in the group. Histology is an efficient method to infer sensilla function in arthropods. Applying this technique in this harvestmen group would be particularly interesting because it would: 1) enable the identification of olfactory receptors...
When compared with other arachnids, the sensilla' fine morphology of the four suborders of Opiliones is poorly know. Specially in Laniatores, the largest suborder, no olfactory receptor has been identified, and only one study, in the suborder Eupnoi, has provided detailed information on gustatory receptor's internal morphology. This is a considerable gap in sensory biology of Opiliones,...
