Personal details


After working 4 years as a chemical engineer in Brazil, I decided to move to the life sciences' field. 

In 2019 I completed my MSc in Life Sciences at Leiden University. There, I did my first internship in Dr van Kasteren's group, where I studied the mannose receptor role in antigen cross-presentation by dendritic cells. 

After that, I joined the Akkari group for my second Master internship, where I stayed as a PhD student since December 2019. My thesis research is aimed at understanding how distinct cancer-intrinsic genetic mutations can differently shape the tumour microenvironment in hepatocellular carcinoma, with main focus on tumour-associated macrophages and tertiary lymphoid structures.
