Work Experience

  • CryoEM Specialist, Brazilian Nanotechnology National Laboratory (LNNano) / Brazilian Center for Research in Energy and Materials (CNPEM), Campinas - Brazil. (September 2, 2013 - January 13, 2023)

    As a Cryo-EM Specialist at LNNano Facility, I have been training users and optimizing conditions for biological specimen preparation from viruses, protein complexes and nucleic acids - protein interactions to soft matter as liposomes, cubosomes, cellulose nanocrystals and more, either by negative staining or cryo techniques.
    Furthermore, I have also had the privilege to be involve with the operation and maintenance of microscopes Titan Krios G3i, Talos Arctica G2, Talos F200C and Jeol JEM 1400Plus. Since I joined LNNano, I had many on-site operational training sessions from Thermo Fisher field application team using non-standard samples, solving challenges on sample preparation and EPU setting for data collection and a 4-weeks hands-on SPA workflow training from sample preparation, microscope settings and data collection by Oregon Health & Science University - Portland, OR, USA.
    I had as well the opportunity to contribute to several projects, some of which rendered publications that can be accessed here by ORCID ID: 0000-0003-1032-4749.
