Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Escola Superior de Agricultura Luiz de Queiroz (ESALQ)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

I graduated in Agronomy from the Federal University of Pelotas (Brazil) Master's in Genetics and Plant Breeding from the University of Sao Paulo (USP) and a Ph.D. in Genetics and Breeding from the Federal University of Viçosa (UFV). Also, I was a visiting scientist at the University of Minnesota, Cornell University, and Queensland University. For nine years, I?ve been an Assistant Professor of Plant Breeding at UFV and USP/ESALQ. From January 2021 to July 2022, I worked as a Senior Scientist Quantitative Genetics and Biometrics at the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), Philippines. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor of Quantitative Genetics / Prediction-based breeding at LSU AgCenter. My work strives i) to make the current generation of breeders able to implement key tools (such as molecular markers, omics, imagery, and weather data) and modern statistical genetic approaches in the development of new products, ii) to develop new breeding schemes and statistical genetic models via stochastic simulations and empirical data, iii) understand the genetics and develop crop germplasm with higher resilience.
