About

I am a biologist from São Paulo, SP interested in the evolution and development of marine invertebrates, programming, image processing, and scientific outreach. I am currently a PhD student in the Comparative Developmental Biology of Animals laboratory at the Sars International Centre for Marine Molecular Biology in Bergen, Norway.

Research

The comparative invertebrate embryology studies from the Russian biologist Élie Metchnikoff and his evolutionary approach to the origin of multicellularity, ontogeny of cellular processes, and organism individuality triggered my interest in evolutionary developmental biology. My work focuses in understanding the origin of morphological traits of larvae and adults of marine invertebrates by studying their embryonic development.
