Carlos Alberto Martinez y Huaman


Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Faculdade de Filosofia, Ciências e Letras de Ribeirão Preto (FFCLRP)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Peru

He has a degree in Agronomy from UNHEVAL (1977), a Master's degree in Agricultural Production from UNALM (1988), and a PhD in Plant Physiology from the Federal University of Viçosa (1994), with a scholarship from the Latin American Botany Network. He is a Full Professor and Associate Professor MS-5 (3) at the University of São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto Campus (USP / RP). He works in the area of #8203;#8203;Botany, with an emphasis on Plant Physiology. The main themes of his research are the ecophysiology of photosynthesis and carbon sequestration; The physiology of plants under abiotic stress, which aims at the physiological and biochemical characterization of genetic variability and mechanisms of plant resistance to light, water, oxidative, saline, and thermal stress; The physiology of plants in response to climate change, in future climate simulation, which aims to elucidate the effects of increased CO2, temperature and water restriction on the physiology and productivity of cultivated plants, pastures and forest species. He was pioneer in Brazil in the use of open-top chambers (OTC), Free-air Carbon Dioxide Enrichment (FACE), and Temperature Free-air Controlled Enhancement (T-FACE) systems to study plant responses in future climate simulation. Ad hoc consultant for FAPESP, CNPq, FAPEMIG, FAPESB, The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research, and scientific advisor for several national and international journals. He was the Coordinator of the Biological Sciences Course at USP / RP, leading the process of reformulating the Course. He was President of the FFCLRP Undergraduate Committee and Member of the USP Undergraduate Council. Member of the Brazilian Society of Plant Physiology, American Society of Plant Biologists, and the International Society of Photosynthesis Research. He was President of the São Paulo Botany Society. He coordinated a thematic project in the FAPESP Research Program on Global Climate Change (PFPMCG). He coordinated a climate change project financed by CNPq / ANA / CAPES. He maintains research collaboration with several Brazilian institutions and international cooperation with the University of Illinois, Urbana Campus (UIUC); University of Illinois, Chicago Campus (UIC); University of Columbia, New York; United States Department of Agriculture, USA; University of Barcelona; Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Spain; Instituto di Biometeorologia, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Italy. Currently coordinates a FAPESP-PFPMCG project on nature-based solutions for mitigation and adaption of pastures to climate change using biological nitrogen fixation in grasses, in collaboration with the EMBRAPA, UNESP/Jaboticabal, Instituto Federal Goiano/Rio Verde, Research Institute Ambientais /SP, and other national and international collaborators.
