RESEARCH PROFILE 

I graduated in Biomedicine at the Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil in 2005. In 2009 I obtained a Masters degree in Public Health from the Centro de Pesquisa Aggeu Magalhães/FIOCRUZ, followed by a PhD from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, which focused on development and evaluation of molecular diagnostics for tuberculosis. I currently work as a molecular biology post-doc to understand the transmission dynamics of human leishmaniasis in NE Brazil.
