Professor in the Department of Geography at the Faculty of Philosophy, Languages and Human Sciences of the University of São Paulo (FFLCH/USP). Completed a postdoctoral fellowship from the University of Campinas (funding agency: FUNCAMP), focusing on assessing the health and carbon stabilization potential of soils in the Brazilian semi-arid region under Agave cultivation. This was part of the Brazilian Agave Development (BRAVE) program, launched by Shell Brasil in partnership with Unicamp to develop Agave as a new source of productive, efficient, and competitive biomass capable of capturing and storing large amounts of carbon. Completed a postdoctoral fellowship (funding agency: FAPESP) in 2021-2023 at the University of São Paulo, focusing on the vulnerability of mangrove soils to climate change. The research centered on alterations in the biogeochemistry of iron and carbon and their implications for ecosystem services.Ph.D. in Soils and Plant Nutrition, specializing in Pedogenesis and Soil Geography, from the Luiz de Queiroz College of Agriculture (ESALQ/USP; CAPES Concept 7). Completed part of the Ph.D. program abroad at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) in 2019-2020. Also earned a Master's degree in Soil Science from the Federal University of Ceará (CAPES Concept 4) and a Bachelor's degree in Agronomy from the same institution in 2014. Brings expertise in agronomy and soil science, with a focus on pedogenesis, soil geochemistry, contaminated soils, greenhouse gas emissions, carbon dynamics, and soils of coastal ecosystems (hydromorphic soils). Serves as the Editor of the Special Issue "Geochemical Behavior of Heavy Metals in Soils and Waters from Mining Sites" in the Minerals journal and as a Guest Editor for the Research Topic "Micro/Trace Elements (M/TEs) and Marine Ecosystems" in the Frontiers in Marine Science journal.
