Birthplace: Brazil

Bachelor in Chemistry and Master's degree in Analytical Chemistry at Sao Paulo State University (IQ-UNESP Araraquara), Degree in Chemistry Teaching at Faculdade Mozarteum de São Paulo, PhD in Analytical Chemistry at Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) and MBA in Data Sciences and Analytics (ESALQ/USP) in progress. I did research internships abroad at Wake Forest University (North Carolina, USA) and post-doctoral internships at UFSCar, UNESP and CENA-USP. I have experience in Analytical Chemistry with emphasis on the development of new calibration methods (SDA, MEC and MICal), sample preparation (digestor block, CHDS and microwave), and use of spectrometric techniques such as UV-Vis spectrophotometry, atomic and molecular absorption spectrometries (LS F AAS, HR-CS F AAS, GF AAS and HR-CS GF AAS, HR-CS MAS), direct solid and slurry sampling (SS), tungsten coil spectrometry (WC AAS and WC AES ) and plasma source techniques (LIBS, ICP OES, MIP OES and ICP-MS) for the determination of trace and ultra-trace levels in agro-industrial, geological, drug, food, beverage, fuel and plant samples. I am currently a PhD professor at the Division of Development of Analytical and Nuclear Methods and Techniques (DVTEC) at the Center for Nuclear Energy in Agriculture (CENA/USP).
