Currently she is a professor in the Chemistry Department at the Faculty of Philosophy, Sciences and Letters of Ribeirão Preto (FFCLRP-USP) and one of the coordinators of the nanotoxicology group at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IEA-USP) São Carlos-SP. Graduated in Chemistry from State University of Maringá, she obtained her Master’s and Doctorate in Sciences – area of concentration in Analytical Chemistry – in the Chemistry Institute of São Carlos of the University of São Paulo (IQSC-USP). During her doctorate she performed a sandwich internship at Rühr Universität, Germany under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schuhmann. She did her postdoctoral work at IFSC in the Nanomedicine and Nanotoxicology Group. She was a visit researcher at the Center for Bionano Interactions coordinated by Prof. Dr Kenneth A. Dawson, University College Dublin, Ireland. His research is focused on the application of analytical techniques in Nanomedicine and Nanotoxicology, working mainly in the development of theranostic nanoparticles, sensors and biosensors, and toxicology of nanomaterials. She published around 37 international articles that received more than 941 citations (h index = 17 and i10 index = 25), in addition to book chapters and patent filing. She has given more than 20 national and international lectures, and serves as a reviewer for numerous international scientific journals.
