Women’s Health R&D
Graduated in Materials Engineering from the Federal University of Itajubá. I participated in the Sciences Without Borders program in the United States as a scholarship student at Michigan State University for one year. During the graduation, I have participated in research on Mechanical Properties of Thermoelectric Materials, Comparative study of protein absorption and microbial activity of commercial coverages with silver for the treatment of wounds and Production of Ceramic Biocomposite of β-TCP and Alumina for implants. I have worked as an intern at Johnson & Johnson in Brazil (San José dos Campos) with Sanitary Products; at Johnson & Johnson in the United States (Skillman) with Formulated Products and at Natura with Natural Ingredients. The extension activities, I participated in two volunteer projects on the use of engineering knowledge to help other people lives: Engineers Without Borders and Habitat for Humanity. As a personal challenge, I participated in the ‘Invent the New Future Challenge’ co-ordinated by 3M, a global case competition about sustainability that tests students’ problem-solving and communication skills. Currently I am working at Johnson & Johnson in the support market products area, leadership and execution of projects for changes in existing products: reformulation, process improvement, cost improvement, non-compliance research and Women’s Health Global R&D.
Topics as implants, sustainability, biomaterials, engineering products, formulated products, nanotechnology, cosmetics, biodiversity have always been present in my personal and professional life.
