RESEARCH PROFILE 

I graduated in Pharmacy and Biochemistry in 2008 at the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE), Recife, Brazil, followed by an MSc in Public Health at Fiocruz-PE (CPqAM) in 2010. I have a keen interest in protozoology and parasitic infectious diseases. My doctoral project concerns quantifying the transmission epidemiology of mucocutaneous leishmaniasis in NE Brazil, involving live-mark-recapture of naturally infected rodent populations, entomology and xenodiagnosis, laboratory diagnosis for Leishmania spp. The project is financed by the Brazilian government Science without Borders Scheme.
