Research interests

trying to have a better understand of the genetic architecture of quantitative traits.My research interest is the development of statistical methods that allow to use information from molecular markers in plant breeding

About

I have a PhD in Genetics and Plant Breeding (Department of Genetics, "Luiz de Queiroz" College of Agriculture, University of São Paulo - ESALQ/USP) and a post-doc in Statistical Genetics (Bioinformatics Research Center, North Carolina State University, USA). I began my career as a researcher working with sugarcane breeding (1995-1998) and as a professor of Statistics (1998-2002). Nowadays, I am a faculty of Department of Genetics (ESALQ/USP).
