Graduated in Biological Sciences from the Federal University of Santa Catarina (2007), she worked with cellular and molecular biology of the protozoan Trypanosoma rangeli. He completed his PhD at the Federal University of São Paulo (2008-2013), studying gene regulation and protein expression during the metacyclogenesis of Trypanosoma cruzi. During a sandwich period at the University of Texas at El Paso (2011-2012), he studied the secretion pathways of T. cruzi, characterizing its protein and nucleic acid content. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the MRC Center for Molecular Bacteriology and Infection, Imperial College London (2013-2015), where he studied the T3SS of Salmonella Typhimurium and the role of effector proteins in host cell modulation. He was a researcher at the Institute of Chemistry of the University of São Paulo (2016-2018), where he identified the function of T6SS from Xanthomonas citri and T4SS from Stenotrophomonas maltophilia. In 2018, he started his research group ( at the Institute of Biomedical Sciences of the University of São Paulo with the help of the Jovem Pesquisador FAPESP program. He is interested in mechanisms of bacterial antagonism and (micro)biological conflicts. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
