Biography

I graduated in Physics (BSc in Physics) at the University of Sao Paulo (USP) in 1990. I completed a Master Degree in Applied Physics also at USP (1992), working under the supervision of Prof. Yvonne P. Mascarenhas, the founder of crystallography in Brazil. My dissertation was about X-ray crystallography applied to organometallics compounds (De Azevedo et al., 1995). During my Ph.D., I worked under the supervision of Prof. Sung-Hou Kim (University of California, Berkeley. Department of Chemistry), on a split Ph.D. program with a fellowship from Brazilian Research Council (CNPq)(1993-1996). My Ph.D. was about the crystallographic structure of CDK2 (Cyclin-Dependent Kinase 2) (De Azevedo et al., 1996). In 1996, I returned to Brazil. In April 1997, I finished my Ph.D. and moved to Sao Jose do Rio Preto (SP, Brazil) (UNESP) and worked there from 1997 to 2005. In 1997, I started the Laboratory of Biomolecular Systems- Department of Physics-UNESP - São Paulo State University. In 2005, I moved to Porto Alegre/RS (Brazil), where I am now. My current position is the coordinator of the Laboratory of Computational Systems Biology at Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS). My research interests are interdisciplinary with two major emphases: Bio-inspired computing and Computational Systems Biology. I published over 170 scientific papers about protein structures and computer simulation methods applied to the study of biological systems (H-index: 39). These publications have over 5000 citations.
