I am a Portuguese native speaker, born in Brazil, and now residing permanently in the USA. I hold both a Masters and a Ph.D. degree in Biochemistry from the University of Sao Paulo, and have performed Postdoctoral studies both in my country and at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, in the area of Cellular and Molecular Biology. Throughout the many years I had worked in research I was often exposed to an international environment and I really enjoyed working in that setting.
In addition, my extended time in a university setting had afforded me the opportunity to enhance many other skills. I have collaborated with a number of researchers, supervised and trained technicians, undergraduate and graduate students, and also taught Biochemistry and Cell Biology courses for medical students in my native country.
I have not worked in the research field since 2006, as I got married in the upcoming year. I am looking at the moment for something capable of challenging me and keeping my hand in the working world.
