I graduated in agricultural engineering from UFLa (1987). Master and Ph.D. in Agricultural Engineering from FEAGRI / UNICAMP (1992, 1998). Professor at the University of São Paulo (2007). Coordinator of NUPEA - Research Center for Ambience at USP since 1991. He has experience in the field of Agricultural Engineering, with emphasis on Rural Constructions and Ambience, acting mainly on the following themes: Animal Welfare, thermal comfort, and animal ambiance, with the use of livestock precision farm tools. Currently works with disruptive technologies in animal production with the insertion of artificial intelligence (AI) tools. He served as a technical-scientific director of SBEA (Brazilian Association of Agricultural Engineering, 1999-2007). Vice-President of the National Agricultural Engineering Association (1999-2003). From 2006 to 2011, he was President of the Brazilian Society of Biometeorology (SBBIOMET). He serves as a member of the editorial board of several magazines in the field of agricultural engineering, agronomy, and animal science. In 2014/2015, he was a visiting professor at the Center Campbell Study of Animal Welfare (CCSAW) at the Bioscience Department, University of Guelph, Canada. Currently, he coordinates the Precision Day Project at ESALQ / USP, the PIBIC / FIC / CNPq program, and the EBAA (Animal Welfare and Ambience Team) of the FAM / Americana veterinary medicine course. In 2015, he was considered one of the 100 most influential people in Brazilian poultry. He is currently a technical consultant to the Ministry of Agriculture in the area of ​​animal welfare. He is the coordinator of the Brazilian Congress of Precision Animal Science, at AVESUI'2020. He acts as a speaker at several events in the area of ​​animal production and technologies applied to production chains. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)

In tropical regions, due to solar light incidence, there is a higher potential of line production and also bigger problems to milk production. The most productive animals have the highest metabolic heat production due to more production of milk, being more vulnerable to thermal heat and its consequences on productivity and sanity. This work objective is to evaluate direct and indirect i...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the locomotor system of broiler chickens raised in a controlled environment, using biomechanical techniques faccording to environmental enrichment throughout the production cycle. The research will be carried out in a climatic chamber at Animal Environment Research Nucleus in State of São Paulo. 120 one-day-old Cobb in 12 birds/m2 density will be use...
The artificial incubation became decisive for the performance of poultry production. So, the control of all factors that surround this process is crucial for the embryonic development and, consequently, to obtain optimal responses of birth. The sound stimulus is also an influential agent in incubation, which motivates this research to investigate its action and define the effects on phy...
This study evaluates different housing systems for pregnant sows aiming to describe quantitative and qualitative aspects of environment, as well as variables that is effect on production system. The optimal conditions for animal performance improvement will be determined analyzing behavioral data took in breeding environment. Trial is carry out from in a farm specialized in industrial p...
