Bio Brief

I was born in Vicosa, Minas Gerais State, Brazil where I finished my B.S. in Agronomy in 2005 at the Federal University of Vicosa (UFV). After that, I started my Master in Entomology which I finished in December 2006. As an undergraduate student I had the opportunity of coming to US. Now, I am back for my PhD. I will be working at the GMPRC (USDA). My research will focus on Stored-Products insects. This international experience will be great for my carrier and I would like to thank everyone that made this possible!
