I obtained a BSc degree in Biological Sciences from University of Brasília - UnB, Brazil (2010), and a MSc degree in Microbiology from University of São Paulo - USP, Brazil (2013). My major research interests focus on Viral Molecular Evolution, from structural genomics to systems biology scales. I have experience in Genome Evolution; Baculovirus Molecular Biology; Protein-Protein Interactions; Structural and Computational Biology.
I am funded by Science without Borders, a scholarship programme managed by the Brazilian federal government (CAPES, Ministry of Education).
Besides my PhD studies, I'm also involved in non-research activities. Since 2016 I'm part of the Student Working Group of the Imperial College Brazil Forum, a community integrating Brazilian researchers, students and alumni from Imperial. In 2016-2017 I was the Executive Director of the Brazilian Association of Postgraduate Students and Researchers in the United Kingdom (ABEP-UK), and at Imperial I was the Vice-President of the Latin American Society (Lat-Imperial).
