Ph.D. in Biological Sciences (area: Applied Microbiology) by the Biosciences Institute of the São Paulo State University - UNESP, Rio Claro campus - SP. being a fellow at The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and with a Research Internship Abroad (BEPE) at Emory University (Atlanta, USA). Master in Biological Sciences (area: Applied Microbiology) by the Biosciences Institute of the São Paulo State University - UNESP, Rio Claro campus - SP. with a scholarship from the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq). Graduated in Biology (2010), with an emphasis on microbiology, from the Federico Villarreal National University (UNFV) - Lima, Peru. I am a mycologist interested in taxonomy, systematics, and trait evolution of fungi that live in close symbiosis with fungus-growing insects (using leaf-cutting ants as a model system). My professional goal is to understand how phenotypic characters of fungi are related to symbiosis with these insects, and I use a combination of methods of classical taxonomy, molecular microbiology, modern phylogeny, time divergence analysis, and ancestral state reconstruction to achieve my goals.
