    BioI am specifically interested in the development of attentional mechanisms and its intersection with the development of reading ability (and therefore reading disability). I am broadly interested in understanding the basic mechanisms that are causally related to naturally occurring conditions, like amblyopia and dyslexia, and how understanding basic mechanisms can be implemented in effective remediation. In particular, Dyslexia interests me as a model to investigate the development and the intersection of visual attentional mechanisms in the development of reading. At Stanford, my research will focus on the role of visual attention in Dyslexia.

    BioI have a B.S. in Biology, M.Sc. in Immunology and Infectious diseases, Ph.D. in Microbiology, and a broad background in virology/microbiology and molecular biology applied to viral infectious diseases. I have a vast knowledge of classical virology, molecular biology, phylogenetic analysis, serological, and molecular diagnosis. I am working on recent YF outbreaks, focusing on viral dynamics, ecology, diagnosis, and the investigation of virological, immunological, and clinical aspects during the course of infection. We have supported the hospital and Secretary of Health of Minas Gerais with some laboratory testing applied to diagnosis of YF, viral genotyping related to YF patients suspected to have adverse events following vaccination, and other analysis. We also have been working on dynamics of the outbreak, on the virological, epidemiological, and immunological aspects during the course of yellow fever. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we also supported the Brazilian Ministry of Health with the SARS-CoV-2 diagnosis in human samples and also in the investigation of the SARS-CoV-2 RNA in surfaces of density public areas of Belo Horizonte. Since Nov/2018 I had been an editor in the journal DocĂȘncia do Ensino Superior (RDES / GIZ / UFMG) and in Jan/2020 I became Editor-in-Chief.
