Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Faculdade de Saúde Pública (FSP)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Degree in Biological Sciences from Universidade São Judas Tadeu (2009). Master's degree (2014) and PhD (2018) from the School of Public Health of the University of São Paulo (FSP/USP), in Epidemiology. He carried out postdoctoral research at FSP/USP and at the Helmholtz Institute for Environmental Research in Germany. He has experience in epidemiology, medical entomology and ecological modeling, working mainly on topics related to the eco-epidemiology of Culicidae and diseases transmitted by these insects. He worked as a trainee in the Synanthropic Fauna Sector of the Zoonosis Control Center of the City of São Paulo (2007-2009) and has a professional qualification in Medical Entomology (2011-2012) from FSP/USP. During his Master's thesis, he studied the diversity patterns of Culicidae in urban parks in the city of São Paulo. In his Ph.D. thesis, he studied the population dynamics of the main malaria vector in the Atlantic Forest, the Anopheles cruzii mosquito, and developed a mathematical model to explain the dynamics of zoonotic malaria transmission in this region. During his postdoctoral studies, he worked on the development of computer models to simulate the transmission dynamics of sylvatic yellow fever and its spread in fragmented landscapes.
