Professor at Veterinary Medicine Department, FZEA/USP. Graduated in Veterinary Medicine at University of São Paulo (2005) with a period at the University of Montreal (CRRA - Center de Recherche en Reproduction Animale / Faculty of Veterinary Medicine). Master in Veterinary Medicine, Animal Reproduction concentration area (2008) working with genetic modification in animals as models of study. PhD in Sciences, Animal Quality and Productivity area of the University of São Paulo (2013) focusing on the themes of cell reprogramming by gene induction into pluripotency and nuclear transfer, and stem cells in human and animal models. Awarded the CAPES Theses Award in 2014 for the thesis titled Generation of pluripotent cells through gene induction and core transfer: bovine pluripotency acquisition model. Carried out postdoctoral studies at the National Institute of Science and Technology in stem cells and cell therapy and at FZEA / USP with the study of in vitro generation of primordial germ cells and epigenetic reprogramming. Has interests and experience in developmental biology, cell reprogramming by nuclear transfer and gene induction (iPS cells), in vitro animal production and embryology, stem cells, transgenesis (genetic engineering), genetic and epigenetic technology.
