Support teaching, research, and patient care.
I have been working full-time with bioinformatics for over 15 years. Before joining Stanford as a postdoctoral scholar, I worked for almost 5 years in a big clinical laboratory in Brazil named Diagnósticos da América (DASA), being responsible for the establishment and leadership of the bioinformatics department. My team was responsible for the validation/operation of multiple strategic products based NGS data as well as the bioinformatics support on selected research projects.My previous experiences were focused on the following topics: DNA variant calling, polygenic scores, bioinformatics pipeline development/automation, gene expression analysis by RNA-Seq, prokaryotic genome assembly and annotation, angiogenesis, and machine learning.I am highly interested in biological questions that can be addressed by DNA sequencing, especially ideas that may be applied to impact a large number of people.
Absolutely passionate about bioinformatics and biological questions that can be addressed by DNA sequencing, especially ideas that may be applied to improve general public health.
