Degree in Physics - Pontificie Catholic University of São Paulo (1976 ); Masters in Electronics and Telecommunications - National Institute for Space Research (1981 ) , PhD in Geophysics - University of São Paulo (1989 ) ; Post-Doc at the Institute of Hydrology (now Centre for Ecology and Hydrology ) in the UK (1991). Senior Researcher at the National Institute for Space Research/ Center for Earth System Science (CCST). Until the late 90s worked on integrated studies in watersheds with emphasis on Hydrogeochemistry, acting on the following topics: chemical species transfers in tropical ecosystems interfaces, biogeochemical cycles, environmental monitoring and observation, application of environmental models in tropical areas, and studies ecosystem acidification. With implementation of the Earth System Science Center (CCST) in 2009, the activities focused on the coordination and implementation of the aerosol, aqueous solutions and technologies laboratory (LAQUATEC) which is one of the laboratory infrastructures supporting the Environmental Biogeochemistry Laboratory research line (LAPBio). With this, within the LAPBio it is being generated environmental quality observational data (atmosphere, vegetation, soil, water and aqueous solutions in general) for both the search line and for postgraduate studies in Earth System Science. Retired in September 2017 and presently is acting as a volunteer researcher. The activities of this phase of the career refer to the collaboration in the postgraduate course of CCST, participation in research projects in progress, publication of the data generated during the career and focusing mainly on the publication of the project results. It is coordinating the transition phase of LAQUATEC activities to the new coordination under the responsibility of Dr. Laura Borma. Professor of the post-graduation Program of Earth System Science CCST/INPE. Feb 2020 I ended my career leaving the Institution (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
