PhD in Genetics, Conservation and Evolutionary Biology and, Postdoctor by the Brazilian National Research Institute of the Amazon, working on the genetic management of native fish in the Amazon basin. I have been developing applied studies for the development of genetic improvement in the species Colossoma macropomum (tambaqui), as well as studies to develop a sex-specific marker for Arapaima gigas (pirarucu).
