Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP). Campus de São José do Rio Preto. Instituto de Biociências, Letras e Ciências Exatas (IBILCE)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Graduated in Biological Physics (2006-2009) and Master's (2010-2012) and Ph.D. (2012-2016) in Molecular Biophysics from São Paulo State University "Júlio de Mesquita Filho" (UNESP) at Institute of Bioscience, Letters and Exact Sciences (IBILCE). During his Ph.D., he held a sandwich doctorate at the Institute of Complex Systems-6 (ICS-6) at Jülich Research Center in Germany for a period of one year. He held a postdoctoral degree at the Department of Physics at UNESP-IBILCE (2016-2018 and 2019-2022) and at the Institute of Medical Biochemistry at UFRJ (2018-2022). He is currently Assistant Professor in the Physics Department at IBILCE-UNESP and is permanent professor of the Biomolecular and Pharmacological Sciences Graduate Program at UNESP-São José do Rio Preto/Botucatu. He has experience in Molecular Biology, Structural Biology, and Physical-chemistry of Macromolecules, applying protein expression and purification techniques, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR), fluorescence, circular dichroism (CD), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), dynamic light scattering (DLS), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and computational simulations of molecular docking and molecular dynamics. He works mainly on the following topics: production of recombinant proteins, biophysical-chemical characterization of proteins (by fluorescence, CD, FTIR, DLS, and DSC), protein structure and dynamics by NMR and interaction of proteins with small ligands (natural products), acids nucleic, and other proteins using experimental and computational approaches.
