CV Lattes

Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP). Instituto de Química (IQ)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Graduated in Pharmacy at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (2009), Master in Chemistry at Unicamp (2012) and PhD in Sciences at Unicamp (2015). She has experience in the development and application of bioinformatics and cheminformatics methods applied to pharmaceutical research, in the areas of Pharmaceutical Chemistry and in silico Pharmacology. She uses computational techniques such as molecular docking, ensemble docking, molecular dynamics and machine learning to investigate ligand-protein interactions and predict biological and toxicological activities, to elucidate the mechanism of action of compounds and prioritize chemical compounds to be experimentally tested. She has a postdoctoral degree at the Faculty of Pharmacy at the Federal University of Goiás (UFG) and is a Researche Associate on the OpenZika Project, in partnership with the World Community Grid/IBM, which aims to identify potential drug candidates against the Zika and Dengue viruses. She participates in projects to discover drug candidates against SARS-CoV-2 viruses, mainly related to viral proteases. In addition, she carries out collaborative projects in the field of neuropsychopharmacology (depression, schizophrenia and neuroinflammation). She is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Faculty of Pharmacy at the Federal University of Goiás (UFG), developing a project in collaboration with Unicamp and University of Gothenburg that uses computational approaches to identify new targets and new compounds capable of combating Plasmodium vivax.
