Currently, a PhD student by the Interunits in Bioinformatics Graduate Program at University of Sao Paulo (2017). MSc in bioinformatics by the same graduate program (2016). The dissertation involved the computational analysis of prokaryotic viruses (bacteriophages) in metagenomic and metatransciptomic samples and isolated phages from composting. Was a visiting researcher (2016) at the Viral Bioinformatics Resource Center, in Victoria Canada. BSc in Biological sciences by the Biosciences Institute of the Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil (2013). During the course, has developed a component of automatic annotation of metabolic pathways (KEGG) for the EGene platform. Has experience in computational characterization of sequences, development of tools, in vrology and metagenomics. Has a good knowledge about programming in C and Perl, Python and basic JAVA.

The advance of technology related to sequencing and new methodologies have enabled the use of innovative approaches to the metagenomic diagnosis of pathogens in humans, more importantly viral pathogens. Several works in the literature describe the use of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) for the identification of viral pathogens that standard methods were not able to diagnose, as a case ...
Metagenomic studies have defined the structure and diversity of microbial communities in environmental samples. The data bring light to the uncultured microbial majority and help us to understand what are the organisms acting in complex processes. The thematic project in which this proposal is inserted (process 2011/50870-6) aims to characterize the diversity in different environmental ...
Phages studies have been experiencing a resurgence of scientific interest due to recent evidences that show their importance in microbial ecology, carbon and other nutrients cycling and potential applications as anti-bacterial therapeutics in clinical, agricultural and food processing fields. They are also theorized as Nature reservoirs of genetic diversity, being responsible for new ge...
