Anieli Guirro Pereira
My research activity has been focused on evolutionary genetics, phylogenetics, biogeography, diversification rates and bioinformatics. My professional career as a researcher began while I was a graduate student in Biology at the Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP). Thereafter, I obtained both my master’s (2013) and PhD (2017) in Biology (Genetics) at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) under the supervision of Dr. Carlos Schrago. My Master's Degree was funded by the Brazilian government funding program CAPES and by the "grade-10 scholarship awarded" which is granted to the best postgraduate students by the funding program of the Rio de Janeiro state (FAPERJ). At that time I started my research project about macroevolutionary patterns related to the occupation of South America. My PhD project was funded by the Brazilian government programs CAPES and CNPq and was focused on the evolutionary history of turtles. During my research career I have developed programming skills, including Bash, Perl, Python and R. So far, I have authored 7 articles in JCR journals (four of them as first author) with a total of 13 citations (h-index=2).
