I am from São Paulo State in Brazil, but I lived since I was 9 years old in Curitiba, Paraná, where I got my DVM degree in 2014 at Federal University of Paraná. At the same university, I got my M.S. (2017) and Ph.D. (2021) degrees in Animal Science, working mostly with animal breeding and quantitative genetics focused on beef cattle. I also did part of my Ph.D. in Australia as visitor scholar at the University of Queensland, in Brisbane. I changed my research focus when I came to the UW-Madison. I worked my first year with survival in Jersey cattle, and now my research is related with resilience in dairy cattle, focusing mostly in evaluate how rumination and behavior can be correlated with more resilient and more efficient cows. In my spare time, I like to watch movies, ride my bicycle around town, and explore new places in Madison with my husband.
