(Institutional affiliation for the last research proposal)
Graduated in Physics (Bachelor's Degree) from the Federal University of Goiás, Master's and Doctorate in Physics Applied to Medicine and Biology from the University of São Paulo. He also held a postdoctoral degree at the Department of Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics, University of Michigan, USA and at the Institute of Chemistry at USP-RP. He was coordinator of the Postgraduate Program in Applied Health Sciences from 04/2017-03/2019 and vice-coordinator in the period 2013-2014. He is currently Associate Professor III on a full-time basis at the Federal University of Jataí (former UFG de Jataí), working in the area of Computational Biology and leader of the Collaborative Biosystems Nucleus (NCBios) at UFJ. The research focus is on the prediction of protein models and the design of new drugs for neglected diseases. The methodologies involved in the research developed at the NCBios laboratory involve molecular modeling techniques for the prediction of protein models, as well as methods used in the screening of new products (drugs) for enzyme inhibition by molecular docking simulations, both studied by Monte Carlo methods and molecular dynamics. He works externally as an evaluator of SINAES-INEP (MEC) courses and reviewer of several international journals.
