Personal profile


B.Sc. in Computer Science, M.Sc. in Bioinformatics and a Ph.D. in Sciences at University of São Paulo. More than 8 years’ experience in bioinformatics and genomic analyses of large-scale sequencing data from animal, environmental and clinical sources, as well as knowledge of artificial intelligence (big data), electronics, infectious diseases and molecular evolution. She has developed several bioinformatic pipelines using short- and long-reads for tracking outbreak dissemination of pathogenic bacteria (ESKAPE) using the One Health approach for evaluating antimicrobial drug resistance profiles; virulome, plasmidome and pangenome content, and phylogenetic analysis to discover transmission routes in South America. Additionally, she has developed and is still working on the development of several low-cost hardware units, such as the LUISA project, and pipeline and GPU-based tools that could help reduce the data processing time, providing feasible and democratic nanopore sequencing analysis for low income countries.
