I’m a PhD student in the Institute of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Oregon, working with Andrew Kern and Peter Ralph. I’m broadly interested in population genetics and computational biology. For my PhD, I have been working on how different evolutionary processes shape the landscape of genetic diversity within and between species.
I received my M.Sc. in Genetics and Evolutionary Biology in 2018 and B.Sc. in Biology in 2016, both from the University of Sao Paulo. I worked on genome-wide clinal and seasonal variation in D. melanogaster under Rodrigo Cogni’s supervision. I also studied geographic variation in D. melanogaster immunity genes and phenotypes in collaboration with John Pool.
