CV Lattes ResearcherID ORCID

Ministério da Ciência, Tecnologia e Inovações (Brasil). Centro Nacional de Pesquisa em Energia e Materiais (CNPEM)  (Institutional affiliation for the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

BsC in Molecular Sciences by the University of Sao Paulo (2003), PhD in Astronomy by the Institute of Astronomy, Geophysics and Atmospherics Sciences of the University of Sao Paulo in 2009 and post-doctorate at the same institute (2012). Currently has a permanent position as researcher at the Synchrotron National Laboratory (LNLS/CNPEM), leading the Carnauba group, of the new nanofocus beamline of Sirius. He works on the field of Astrobiology and Planetary Sciences. He is also an associate researcher of the Research Unity of Astrobiology (NAP-Astrobio), of the University of Sao Paulo, and has experience on the study of the effects of radiation on chemical and biological systems. He uses theoretical, experimental and field work tools for the study on the interaction of life with its environment, in a way to extrapolate to other planets the information from present-day life on extreme environments of Earth, and past life, from the fossil record. He also works with the phenomenon of the origin of life, its adaptation to planetary surfaces and the habitability of the Solar System, including with the use of space-based platforms.
