Fundo de Defesa da Citricultura (FUNDECITRUS)  (Institutional affiliation for the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Master's degree in Agronomy (Plant Pathology) at the University of São Paulo (USP, 1991) and PhD in Plant Pathology by the Louisiana State University (LSU, 1996). Worked for seven years at University of Ribeirão Preto (UNAERP, 1997-2004) and has worked for 16 years at the Fund for the Defense of the Citriculture (Fundecitrus, 2004-now). Has gained experience in research, extension, and education. Has led or leads research on (i) the etiology and management of various diseases of sugarcane, in particular of the ?eye spot?, ?ratoon stunting? and ?leaf scald?, caused respectively by the fungus Bipolaris sacchari and by the vascular bacteria Leifsonia xyli subsp. xyli and Xanthomonas albilineans, and (ii) the etiology and management of diseases of citrus, especially ?variegated chlorosis? and ?huanglongbing - HLB? or ?greening? caused by or associated to Xylella fastidiosa and Candidatus Liberibacter spp., vascular bacteria transmitted by insects. Participated of the 'X. fastidiosa Genome Project' resulting in the first plant pathogen to have the entire genome sequenced. Has assisted farmers and agents of governments, in Brazil and abroad, by Fundecitrus or as a consultant of FAO, on the control of HLB. Has taught courses on plant-pathogen-insect-environment interactions and disease management practices in undergraduate (UNAERP) and postgraduate (Fundecitrus, UNESP-Jaboticabal, Instituto Biológico) courses. Has guided a total of 12 undergraduate (IC and TCC), 13 MSc and 4 PhD students. At Fundecitrus, idealized and coordinated (2009-2012) a professional master course on ?Management of diseases and pests of citrus?, evaluated as concept 4 (1-5) at CAPES. From 2013 to 2018 worked as an adjunct coordinator of CAPES for the Professional master courses in the area Agronomical Sciences I. Several of the carried researches were supported by the state and federal agencies Fapesp and CNPq. As author or co-author has published 47 articles in high-impact-factor journals as Plant Disease, Phytopathology, Plos One, Current Microbiology, Journal of Plant Pathology, Applied and Environmental Microbiology, Genome Research and Nature. Until June 2020 his publications had been cited 2532 times and attained h index of 22 and i10 index of 30 ( (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
