Biomedicine at Universidade do Oeste de Santa Catarina (2010). Master's degree (2013) and Ph.D. (2017) in Sciences by the Graduate Program in Basic and Applied Immunology of the Medical School of Ribeirão Preto, University of São Paulo. He has a Ph.D. internship in the Center for Virus Research - University of Glasgow, Scotland (2015-2016). He has experience in microbiology, especially on virology, acting in prospection, genomic and evolutionary studies of zoonotic, emerging and re-emergent viruses. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)

High throughput sequencing (HTS) allowed important advances in the identification and characterization of viruses, without requirement the viral isolation or propagation in cell culture system. In recent year, the costs these methods have been drastically reduced, making that use this method increasingly in studies of viruses with importance in human public health, including zoonotic vi...
In the last decades many emerging and reemerging viruses have become a significant and growing danger to the global public health. Many of these viruses have zoonotic cycle, and can be transmitted to humans by wild animals such as rodents, mosquitoes or ticks. Due to environmental factors and the association of these animals with high ecological diversity of Brazil, the country has seve...
Viruses of the genus hantavirus are members of the family Bunyaviridae. These viruses cause two serious diseases transmitted by rodents to humans: Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome (HFRS) or Hantavirus Cardiovascular Pulmonary Syndrome (HCPS), which is characterized by respiratory distress, fever, pulmonary vascular leakage, shock and high mortality and is a very important problem o...
Next-generation sequencing technologies are increasingly used in metagenomic studies. It is largely due to the high sequence data throughput capacity and unbiased approach in determining the genetic composition of a sample. The present study evaluates the applicability of the Illumina next-generation sequencing platform for viral metagenomic analysis of samples from wild rodents, opossu...
