Dr Ataíde is a research officer in Associate Professor Freya Fowkes’ group looking at possible immune correlates of resistance to antibiotics in falciparum malaria.
After completing his university degree in Biotechnology Engineering in 2004, in Portugal, and worked in Angola as project manager for a HIV and STD clinic becoming a research assistant at Dr Maria Mota’s malaria lab in 2005.
He conducted his PhD studies at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Melbourne, Australia with Professor Stephen Rogerson.
After completion of his PhD studies in 2011 he worked as a postdoc in Edinburgh with Dr Alex Rowe and São Paulo, Brazil with Dr Claudio Marinho, where he remained for two years before joining A/P Fowkes' group.
His main research interests are the pathological, immune and epidemiological aspects of malaria with expertise in what concerns the study of serology and mechanisms of immunity and pathogenicity.
