Associate Professor of the University of São Paulo, with undergraduate studies in Agronomy and graduate studies in Animal Nutrition and Use of Nuclear Techniques in Mineral Metabolism in Ruminants. Post-doc studies of whole crop products for dairy cows at Reading University (UK) and Researcher scholar at UC Davis (USA). Since 1985, researcher at CENA/USP in the area of nuclear and related techniques in agricultural productivity studies. Consultant for the International Atomic Energy Agency and ad hoc consultant of FAPESP, CNPq, EMBRAPA and PADCT-MIC. Have experience in animal science with an emphasis in animal feed assessment, quantification and qualification of bioactive molecules and nutritional strategies for sustainable production of ruminants and food security: ? use of radiotracers in body composition (3H), bioavailability and mineral metabolism in livestock (32P, 45Ca), radioimmunoassay (125I); ? in vitro gas production (syringes and transducer) to evaluate co-products, tanniniferous plants and plant secondary metabolites as modifiers of ruminal fermentation; ? use of tracers for quantifying the ruminal microbial mass (15N and purine derivatives) and diet constituent (δ13C and δ 15N); ? in vivo quantification of enteric methane production (chambers and SF6 tracer) in studies of strategies to increase the sustainable and secure production of ruminants.
