Short Bio

    Kary Ocaña is a Researcher Pleno Technologist of the Bioinformatics Laboratory (LABINFO) at the National Laboratory of Scientific Computing (LNCC). She was Post-Doc (2010 - 2015) and was supported by a FAPERJ's grant "Post-doc note 10" (2013 - 2015) of the Department of Computer Science at the COPPE Institute of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ, RJ-Brazil). She was awarded as Young Scientist of Our State by FAPERJ since 2017. In 2018 realized a scientific visit at the Center of Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, and Integrative Biology at Institut Pasteur (Paris-France), reinforcing collaborative research. She received both her D.Sc. (2010) and M.Sc. (2006) in Cellular and Molecular Biology from the Oswaldo Cruz Institute (FIOCRUZ, RJ-Brazil) and her B.Sc. (2002) in Pharmaceutical Biochemistry from the National University of San Marcos (UNMSM, Lima-Peru) and UFRJ. She participates in research projects in those areas, with funding from Brazilian government agencies as CNPq, CAPES and FAPERJ and is a member of SBC, IEEE and ACM.
