I am a determined molecular biologist very engaged in the research about the genetic basis of diseases and molecular diagnosis, with proficiency in medical genetic, rare inheritable diseases, complex genetic disorders, thyroid cancer. I have a bachelor degree in biology from Mackenzie Presbyterian University, São Paulo, Brazil (2002). I started my academic life as a scientific initiation student in FAPESP/LICR Human Cancer Genome Project (Sequencing center QV3 - University of São Paulo, Brazil) in 2001. After this, I completed my Ph.D. in Science (cell and molecular biology of thyroid cancer) at Biomedical Science Institute, University of São Paulo, SP, Brazil (2008) with an internship abroad at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (2007). Since 2010, I?ve been part of a multidisciplinary group at University of Campinas (Piracicaba Dental School), which research efforts are focused on the molecular diagnosis and genotype-phenotype correlation of rare and complex genetic diseases which affect the bone, tooth or the oral cavity, and molecular aspects involved in periodontal disease and regeneration. Since 2017, I?ve been also involved in extension activities. I am responsible for planning, elaboration of all didactic material and coordination online activities for the extension course "Bioinformatics applied to the identification of mutations associated with human genetic diseases (FOP-0381)" offered by Escola de Extensão da Unicamp (EXTECAMP). I have knowledge and expertise in the molecular diagnosis of inherited disease and syndromes using genetic and genomic approaches (Sanger and Next Generation Sequencing), human genetics, medical genetics, cell and molecular biology. Furthermore, I also have knowledge and experience with some complex genetic diseases (such as cancer and periodontitis), analysis of proteomics (from mass spectrometry) and genomics data, bioinformatics and computational biology. Currently, I am very engaged and motivated by the challenge of finding the causative mutations in rare diseases or genetic factors involved with complex diseases using genetic, genomic and computational approaches. I am enthusiastic in the solving problems in medical genetics and molecular biology, creatively integrating several different knowledge, methodologies and computational tools in the study of genetic disorders and molecular basis of diseases. My academic journey and the fact I have worked in different health research topics, made me a highly flexible and independent professional, open to changes and able to adjust to different challenges, efficiently working as part of an interdisciplinary team, mentoring staff, managing multiple projects simultaneously, problem-solving, integrating different methodologies and knowledge, collect and analyze information with critical thinking, always with attention to details, establishing standards and processes which enhance quality.
