Birthplace: Brazil

I have DMV degree by UNESP, Brazil (1999-2003), Ph.D. in Genetics and Molecular Biology by UNICAMP, Brazil (2004-2007). I did post-doctoral training at Sciensano (Former Veterinary Agrochemical Centre, VAR), in Brussels, Belgium (2007-2008), and I worked as Assistant Researcher at the same Institute from 2008 to 2011. In 2011, I got a position as Assistant Professor at FZEA-USP. From 2017 to 2019, I was a Visiting Scientist at the Southeast Poultry Research Laboratory (SEPRL-ARS), US Department of Agriculture, Athens, Georgia. I am a tenured Associate Professor at FZEA-USP, Brazil. My research emphasis is pathogenesis, the ecology of avian diseases, host-pathogen interactions, and vaccinology of avian diseases. My projects are mainly linked to epidemiology, diagnostic tools, protection, and immunity afforded by vaccines of the most important diseases of the poultry industry. Since 2014, I am a member of the Advisory Committee of the Poultry Health National Program at the Ministry of Agriculture of Brazil. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
