In 2023, I was accredited as a full professor in the Postgraduate Program in Biotechnology applied to health at UNAERP (grade 5 from CAPES) and in the Postgraduate Program in Nutrition and Metabolism at the Faculty of Medicine of Ribeirão Preto (grade 4 from CAPES ). Currently, I supervise three scientific initiation students, with FAPESP and CNPQ scholarships, two students with extension project work with institutional scholarships and nine course completion works, these works were presented at the Congress of Scientific Initiation and Research at Unaerp, Campus Ribeirão Preto, SP.

I have been a Researcher at the Research Center on Aging and the Elderly (NAPENV) at the University of São Paulo since September 2012, linked to the research lines Sarcopenia and Frailty Syndrome, Intrinsic Capacity and its Relations with the Environment and Integrated Health Care Health in Aging. I have experience in the area of #8203;#8203;Clinical Nutrition, with an emphasis on Gerontology and Biochemistry, working mainly on the following topics: assessment of nutritional status in the elderly, assessment of food consumption, body composition, metabolism and energy expenditure, working with methods of using stable isotopes to assessment of body composition, energy expenditure and protein metabolism by Mass Spectrometry.
