Birthplace: Brazil

Graduated in Agricultural Engineering from the Universidade Federal Rural do Rio de Janeiro (1988), Master's in Biological Sciences (Biophysics) from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and from the Instituto Fundação Oswaldo Cruz FIOCRUZ (1991). His doctorate was in Molecular Cell and Developmental Biology - University of California Los Angeles (1998). He is currently an MS-5 RDIDP associate professor at the São Carlos Institute of Physics IFSC at the University of São Paulo. He was chairman of the Graduate Committee and Coordinator of the Graduate Course in Physics at IFSC (2013-2016). He was the proponent of the creation of the Bachelor of Physical and Biomolecular Sciences course at IFSC-USP, being its coordinator from 2006 to 2012. He was coordinator of the Coordinating Committee of the Licentiate Course in Science - Interunits (IFSC, IQSC and ICMC) of 2004 to 2010. He was professor coordinator of the USP-São Carlos team of the Rondon project, Palmares operation, in July 2018. He is currently deputy head of the Department of Physics and Interdisciplinary Science (2020-2022), member of the São Carlos Campus Management Council, member of the IFSC Library Board. He is a member of the Brazilian Society of Protozoology (SBPz), where he served as a full board member from 2012 to 2016. He is a member of the Brazilian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SBBq) and the International Society for Protistology (ISOP). He has experience in the field of Biochemistry, with an emphasis on Molecular and Structural Biology of Parasites and Structural Virology, mainly focused on protozoa Kinetoplastidae (Leishmania and Trypanosoma) and Free Living Amebas and their giant viruses. He works on the following topics: Molecular Cloning, Structural Biology, Protein Translation, Selenocysteine Synthesis and Virus Structure. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
