Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP). Instituto de Biologia (IB)  (Institutional affiliation for the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Has a PhD in Cell and Molecular Biology - Göteborg University , Sweden (2004 ) and post- doctorate in Biochemistry at the University of Cambridge ( United Kingdom - 2004 to 2015 ) . Is currently assistant professor in the Department of Structural and Functional Biology (Cell Biology area) Institute of Biology , State University of Campinas (UNICAMP). Has experience in genetics and biochemistry with emphasis on synthetic biology. Uses Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a platform for the discovery of new drugs. This includes the genetic engineering of various metabolic pathways of the yeast for screenings on a large scale . Develops modulators of heterologous metabolic pathways in yeast works on the identification of new compounds with antiparasitic activity, performs chemical-genomic profiling for the indentification of mode of action of natural compounds with antiviral, antibacterial or antiparasitic activity, and works on the identification of cellular drug import mechanisms.
