Birthplace: Brazil

Prof. Dr. Moacir Rossi Forim holds a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry and Technological Chemistry from the State University of Londrina, graduated in 2001. He obtained his Ph.D. in Natural Sciences, with a specialization in Organic Chemistry and a subfield in Natural Products Chemistry, from the Federal University of São Carlos in 2006. He also completed a postdoctoral internship at the University of Waterloo in Canada in 2014. He currently holds the position of Associate Professor IV in the Department of Chemistry at UFSCar.His research interests include natural products chemistry, chemical ecology, entomology, microbiology, analytical instrumentation, and nanotechnology. His current projects have as main objectives the search for bioactive molecules applicable to the direct or indirect control of insect pests, microorganisms and medicinal chemistry.As a strategy, he develops chemical ecology studies to analyze plant response mechanisms, using proteomic and metabolomic techniques in collaboration with analyses of entomological parameters. Prof. Dr. Moacir also works with nano- and microencapsulation of natural products, including plant extracts and essential oils, as well as entomopathogenic microorganisms, and is dedicated to biodegradation processes promoted by microbial strains.He has played important roles in the administrative structure of UFSCar, including participation in the Chemistry Department Council, UFSCar Graduate Program Council, Vice Coordinator of the Biotechnology Graduate Program, and Vice Coordinator and later Coordinator of the Chemistry Degree Program. Currently, Prof. Dr. Moacir is President of the SISGEN Committee and Coordinator of Research Infrastructure at UFSCar. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
