Native from Brazil, Vinicius has received his PhD in Analytical Chemistry at the University of Campinas after a 2-year experience period working in CEMBIO, under the supervision of Coral Barbas and Javier Ruperez, in Madrid. During this period, he worked on the adaptation of a tissue sample extraction methodology for the application on dried blood spots samples collected from female soccer players during an international championship, later analyzed using multiplatform metabolomics (CE-MS, GC-MS and LC-MS). Currently, Vinicius is working as a Post-Doc Researcher at the Institute for Biomedicine at EURAC Research, in Bolzano - Italy, under the supervision of Johannes Rainer. His main activities are related to sample preparation and LC-MS data generation (both targeted and untargeted) from plasma samples of the CHRIS populational study, which is mainly focused on Parkinson, ageing and cardiovascular diseases.
