About

Bachelor of Biomedicine by Uninassau and Specialization in Clinical Microbiology from the University of Pernambuco - UPE. Masters in Cellular and Molecular Biology from UPE working on antimicrobial resistance in enterobacteria. Currently doing PhD in Tropical Medicine at the Oswaldo Cruz Institute-FIOCRUZ-RJ which develops research projects in the area of ​​molecular genetics of microorganisms, epidemiology, nosocomial infection and bacterial resistance to antimicrobial agents, acting on the following subjects: Molecular epidemiology (PFGE and MLST), molecular investigation of genes and resistance determinants in Enterobacteriaceae (blaKPC, blaCTX-M, blaSHV, blaTEM, OXA, QNR) and molecular characterization of genetic elements associated with resistance (Plasmids, Transposons, integrons).
