Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Instituto de Física (IF)  (Institutional affiliation for the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Prof. Paulo made his undergraduate studies in Physics at the University of São Paulo, and got his BSc in 197, receiving his PhD in Environmental Physics at the same institute in 1985. At his Pos Doc he worked at the University of Antwerp, Belgium, University of Lund, Sweden, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and at the University of Harvard. In the 1980s, Prof. Artaxo initiated the study of tropical aerosols, emphasizing the importance of biomass burning in Amazonia as a source of climatically important aerosol particles. Since 1995, he is one of the leaders of the LBA (The Large Scale Biosphere Atmosphere Experiment in Amazonia) Experiment. As one of coordinators of the LBA experiment, he coordinated several large international experiments such as ABLE-2A and 2B, TRACE-A, SCAR-B, SMOCC, CLAIRE 98, CLAIRE2001, EUSTACH, AMAZE, among others. He has a strong international role in fostering scientific growth in developing countries, being a member of the scientific steering committees of several IGBP (International Geosphere Biosphere Program) core projects such as IGAC (International Global Atmospheric Chemistry), iLEAPS (International Land Ecosystem-Atmosphere Process Study), BIBEX, DEBITS and was General Secretary of the CACGP (Commission of Atmospheric Chemistry and Global Pollution). He worked at the CACGP Science Steering Committee from 1994-2004. He also was a formal member of the SCAR Global Change program, and WMO/IAPSAG on the assessment of the effects of aerosols on the global precipitation. He was a member of the IPCC group that analyzed the global effects of aviation on climate. He was director of the global change program of the Latin American CYTED institute (Programa Iberoamericano de Ciencia y Tecnología para el Desarrollo) from 2004 to 2007. He was a lead author of the IPCC Working Group 1 from 2005-2007, and a lead author of the IPCC AR4 and AR5 teams. Paulo Artaxo have published more than 448 scientific papers, and presented more than 1030 scientific papers in international conferences. He is one of the most cited Brazilian scientists with more than 16700 scientific citations, with an ?H-index? from the ISI Web of Sciences of 72. He has more than 37,000 citations on the Google Scholar database, and an H index of 92. He was the advisor of 50 MsC and PhD students, and helped to organize 29 international scientific conferences. For 8 years (2000-2008) Paulo Artaxo coordinated a large Brazilian government Millennium Institute for Amazonia, working in the scientific aspects of the Amazonian ecosystem and how to build up sustainable development for the Amazon region. Among his honors, Prof. Artaxo was elected member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences in 2005 and member of TWAS (The Academy of Sciences for the Developing World) in 2010. In 2004, the Brazilian Senate awarded him a special prize in recognition of his role in the contribution to the study of the effects of tropical aerosol particles on the hydrological cycle in Amazonia. In 2006, he was elected a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for his ?Pioneering research in the biogeochemical cycling of pollutants, synthesis of atmospheric-hydrological-climate interactions in the tropics and for leading Brazilian science to international preeminence?. In 2007, he was honored with the TWAS (The Academy of Sciences of the Developing World) Earth Science Prize, for his work on Amazonia. He was the recipient of the Award Dorothy Stang of 2007. In 2009 he was awarded with the title of Doctorate of Philosophy Honoris Causa of the University of Stockholm, Sweden. In 2010 he received the Fissan-Pui-TSI award for his work on international Scientific Cooperation. He also received in 2010 the Ordem do Mérito Científico Nacional, at the level of Comendador. In 2016 received the "Premio Almirante Álvaro Alberto" from MCTI, CNPq. He is an Emeritus Researcher from CNPq. In 2017 received the award Globo Faz a Diferenca. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
