Graduated in Bachelor in Applied Mathematics from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (2006) and Master's degree in Pure Mathematics with emphasis in Probability and Statistics at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (2008). Currently a PhD in Statistics from the Pennsylvania State University (2013). Has experience in the area of probability and statistics, with emphasis on Generalized Linear Models and Design of Experiments, mainly with count data models with over-dispersion.
Assistant Professor II of the Department of Pharmacy at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN). Operates mainly in the area of biological activity prediction by QSAR , 2D, 3D and 4D models. He has expertise in the area of molecular dynamics simulations, force fields, ab-initio calculations.
I have a BSc in Biology obtained from the Universidade Federal do Paraná (1999), and a MSc and a PhD in Cell Biology from the Medical School of Ribeirao Preto, University of São Paulo (USP) (2004), when I started my career progression in mass spectrometry-based proteomics. From 2005 to 2007, I did my post-doctoral research in collaboration with Matthias Mann at the Department of Proteomics and Signal Transduction, Max-Planck Institute for Biochemistry (Martinsried, Germany). From 2007 until 2010 I was an independent researcher at the University of Bergen (Norway), implementing proteomic projects in the following topics: parasite/host interactions, characterization of virulence factors in bacteria, characterization of drug-resistance factors in bacteria, evolution of clinical strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. During 2010 until 2015, I was hired as a Principal Investigator at the Dept. of Immunology in the University of Oslo (Norway), and as a manager of the Proteomics Core Facility, Oslo University Hospital, working in the following subjects: characterization of antigenic peptides in autoimmune diseases such as celiac disease, proteomic characterization of primary T cell clones from patient donors, proteogenomic analysis of the human genome. Currently I am interested in developing bioinformatic tools to improve mass spectrometry data analysis, and to allow the meta-analysis of mass spectrometry data collected independently, as well as to improve genomic annotation of eukaryotes, as for example by characterizing rare protein isoforms.
