I am currently a doctoral student in the Graduate Program in Entomology – UFV, with a scholarship from the Student Programa Estudante Convênio – Pós Graduação (PEC-PG). I studied biology at the Universidad del Tolima (Ibagué-Colombia) (2003-2010). During my undergraduate studies, I worked with the taxonomy of Ephemeroptera doing as a monograph a taxonomic revision of the genus Baetodes present in the department of Nariño – Colombia. I did my master’s degree in Tropical Biodiversity at Universidade Federal do Espirito Santo (2012-2014), where I continued my studies in taxonomy of the order Ephemeroptera and my research was focused on taxonomically reviewing the three genera of the Baetodes complex present in Colombia. I am currently doing ecotoxicology and physiology research in different groups of aquatic insects (Belostomatidae, Culicidae, Notonectidae).
“Y te enseñaré a vencer a tu enemigo
Que no son los demás
Eres tú, ¡¡eres tú!
Hay que fracasar
Y a veces fondo tocar
Para ver la luz
Y esta vida apreciar
La felicidad no consiste en todo tener
Si no en saber sacar, lo bueno que te da”
Mago de Oz
