Medical doctor deeply interested on research related to immunology and infections. I have got a PhD on Medical Sciences in 2019 and continued as a postdoc at Karolinska Institute in Sweden. I have experience working on molecular and cell biology, microscopy, and modulation of immune responses in murine models of diabetes and infection (parasitic and tuberculosis). I have experience teaching Parasitology and combining clinical assistance and research. Currently working in a Diabetes Research Project as a postdoc in SIDA bilateral programme.
