I am a virologist who develops and uses computational tools to study molecular evolution. I hold a BSc degree (Hons) in Biological Sciences from the University of Brasília (UnB), a MSc in Microbiology from the University of São Paulo (USP), and a PhD in Computational Biology from Imperial College London.

Currently I am a postdoctoral associate at the Yale School of Public Health, based at Grubaugh Lab, investigating the emergence, transmission, and evolution of mosquito-borne viruses. My research involves multiple aspects of Molecular Evolution, integrating Phylogenetics, Genomics and Structural Biology data to better understand the evolution of viruses from a systemic perspective.
