Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Instituto de Química de São Carlos (IQSC)  (Institutional affiliation for the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Bachelor in Chemistry by the Universidade Estadual de Maringá (2005), Master of Physical Chemistry (2007) and PhD in Physical Chemistry (2011) by the Institute of Chemistry of São Carlos / USP. Has experience in Chemistry, focusing in Electrochemistry and Electrocatalysis, acting on the following themes: renewable energy, fuel cells, diffusion electrodes, ultrathin layer electrode, preparation of catalysts by different methods, hydrogen oxidation reaction in presence of CO, oxygen reduction reaction, borohydride oxidation and oxidation of small organic molecules. PhD internship (2009) at the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble (INPG) / Laboratoire d'Electrochimie et de Matériaux et des Physicochimie des Interfaces in France, working on the synthesis and characterization of oxides doped with transition metals. Between August 2011 and September 2012, served as a researcher at the Federal University of São Carlos, Department of Chemical Engineering, in collaboration with Petrobras in the development of micro and mesoporous zeolites for use in the petroleum refining industry. Currently I'm post-doctoral fellow at the Institute of Chemistry of São Carlos, on projects focused on the use of biofuels for electricity generation. Between 2013-2014 held Post-Doctorate stage in the SAMCat team of the Université de Poitiers / France. She has experience in Conventional Electrochemical Techniques, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy, Electrochemical Mass Spectroscopy, X- ray Absorption Spectroscopy, High Performance Liquid Chromatography, and nanomaterial characterization techniques such as Transmission Electron Microscopy, X-ray Diffraction X and others.
