Background

Post Doc. Researcher at Mount Sinai, 2018-Present. Post Doc. Researcher at Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (2016-2018). Ph.D. in Bioinformatics from Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (2012-2016). Bachelor Degree in Biological Sciences from Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos (2011). Stronghold in Computational Biology / Bioinformatics and data analysis with passion about Immunology.


Motivation

The exploration of obvious and not so obvious patterns within biological systems is fascinating. From the simplest organisms such as plasmids and self-regulating RNAs to structured communities of cells with diverse molecular machines working together towards a higher entropy state. My research purpose is currently to identify, understand and describe those patterns within different biological contexts. Immunology, Cancer, and Omics.


Biology & Computer Science

This is the place where the magic happens and suddenly what seems hard to interpret becomes clear. Mathematical models and visualization techniques allow understanding phenomena that otherwise are incomprehensible to the naked eye.
