about me

I am a research scientist at Embrapa. This is the Brazilian governmental company dedicated to agricultural research.

I apply genomics to improve the use of plant genetic resources by breeding programs.

Most of the projects I've been involved with are related to the characterization of plant genetic resources and their use in breeding programs, with the aid of genomics and molecular tools.

You can see a list of my publications on this page, on Google Scholar, or my CV on the Lattes platform (a standard platform for Brazilian scientists).
