Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP). Faculdade de Odontologia de Piracicaba (FOP)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

He holds a degree in Biological Sciences from the Barão de Mauá University Center, a Master's and Doctorate from the Agricultural Microbiology program at the Faculty of Agricultural and Veterinary Sciences - FCAV / Unesp - Jaboticabal, in Molecular Biology of Micro-organisms, with emphasis on analysis of gene expression by Real-time PCR, isolation and characterization of microorganisms applied in bioremediation. He is currently developing work in collaboration with LAPEMA/ UNIFRAN working in Clinical Microbiology, General Microbiology, Microbial Ecology, Interactions between Microorganisms and Hosts, Applied Microbiology, Ecosystem Services, Bioprospecting, Bioremediation and Resistome/Mobiloma, as well as the application of propolis as an anti-inflammatory agent. -microbial. Since 2019 she has been a Collaborating Researcher at Ecobiotech, a biotechnology start-up, where she develops and implements a technology called Microgenic. For two years she has been working as a Post-Doctor at Unicamp, with metagenomic studies of microbial communities of endo-perio-infections. She is currently a collaborator of the graduate program in Sciences at the University of Franca -Unifran. Her skills are focused on culture-dependent techniques: bioprospection and isolation of microorganisms in rich and minimal media, enzymatic tests, nitrogen fixation, phosphate solubilization, antimicrobial susceptibility and resistance tests. He also has skills in culture-independent techniques and analyzes of the structure and composition of microbial communities, with an emphasis on DNA extraction techniques, whether prepared or ready-made protocols, for example DNA extraction kits, PCR and qPCR techniques, and sequencing (platforms, Sanger, Ilumina, Ion Torrent and Nanopore). She has skills in Bioinformatics for data analysis from next generation sequencing, using Qiime, MG-RAST, Trimmomatic, Spades, Soap, Quast, Prokka software. And still dominates statistical software PAST, PRIMER, CANOCO, R, STAMPA. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
