She started her Direct Doctorate in 2020 at USP's Institute of Chemistry (IQ), at the Biopolymers Laboratory, under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Luiz Henrique Catalani. Main interests: Biopolymers, hydrogels, polymeric synthesis, polymers, nanomaterials, materials science, 3D printing, surfaces and colloids. From 2012 to the present, she has worked in the area of research and development with national and international experience. From 2012 to 2015 she worked in the academic area on projects financed by Fapesp (FAPESP 2013 / 03480-3), under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Denise S.F. Petri. Project developed: Stabilization of oil-in-water emulsions by cellulose nanocrystals, ultrasound and polycations. This project was started and developed at USP (IQ) and also in the USA, at NCSU (North Carolina State University), through the USP academic merit internationalization program, under the guidance of Prof °. Dr Orlando Rojas. This work was published in the journal Cellulose in 2016 (DOI 10.1007s10570-016-0965-3).
