- Interests: Clinical bioinformatics (DNAseq), RNAseq, Women in STEMM, Latin Dancing, Capoeira (Brazilian martial art)
I have now been working in Australia for over 5 years, and my current position as a Senior Bioinformatician at the Monash Bioinformatics Platform (Monash University) is providing me with all the challenges, responsibilities and achievements I was hoping for. My current focus is on supporting Clinical Bioinformatics at one of the biggest hospital in Victoria (Monash Health) and, more specifically, the use of genomics for Personalized Medicine, with the ultimate goal to improve Human health in general.
My passion for capoeira, a Brazilian martial art, has helped me gain confidence both personally and professionally; and I now aim at helping other women find their own. I have become an advocate for gender equity and a strong supporter of women in science, who I believe deserve to be recognized for all the hard work and talent they have brought, and continue to bring, to the exciting field that is science.
