Graduation at Mechanical Engineering from Universidade Federal do Paraná UFPr (1978), Master's at Mechanical Engineering from Universidade Estadual de Campinas (1981) and PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Universitat Hannover (1989) with a fellowship for DAAD (Deuscher Akademischer Austauschdienst). Post-doc researcher at the Institut fuer Angewandte Mechanik of the Brunswick University in Germany (1992) and (2005). Since 2005 he is full professor at the Deparment of Computational Mechanics (DMC) of the School of Mechanical Engineering (FEM) at the State University at Campinas (UNICAMP). At Unicamp he was for two periods head of the Department for Computational Mechanics (DMC), (1991-1992) and (1994-1996), advisor to the Vice-President Research at Unicamp (1996-1998), coordinator of the graduate program at the School of Mechanical Engineering at Unicamp (2001-2002). From 2009 through 2013 he was VP-Graduate under the administration of Prof. Fernando Costa. He is a CNPq research fellowship recipient since 1990. At CAPES he was part of the comission that elaborated the National Graduate Plan PNPG (2011-202), member of the comisison that analyzed and evaluated the Brazilian National Graduate System (2015-2016) and he was also part of the Special Advisor Group (GAE) to the Director of International Relations (2015-2019). He was recipient of a CAPES senior fellowship at the Technological Institute of Aeronautics (ITA), (2014-2016). He was member of the Engineering Coordination I at FAPESP (São Paulo Research Foundation) form 2008 through 2016. He is member of the Adjunct Panel (Special Programs and Research Collaborations) at FAPESP since 2016. He is member of the EMI-ASCE (Engineering Mechanics Institute-American Society of Civil Engineers) Elasticity Committee since October 2008. He was chair of the EMI-ASCE Elasticity Committee from October 2013 to October 2015. He is member of the Executive Support Group (ESG) from the Global Research Council (GRC) since 2017. He is vice-president of the Regional Leaders Summit, a consortium that encompasses 7 states in as many countries (Bavaria, Shandong, Western Capes, Georgia, Upper Austria, Quebec and São Paulo). His research work is concentrated in Mechanical Engineering, particularly in the area of Solid Mechanics. His research fields include Dynamic Soil-Structure Interaction (DSSI), Boundary Element Methods, Structure and Foundation Dynamics and the synthesis of Green?s functions applied to DSSI. In the last years he has been working in international collaboration to develop numerical tools to simulate the mechanical behavior of nano-structures. Throughout his career he interacted with researcher abroad including Heinz Antes for the Institute of Angewandte Mechanik of the Brunswick University, Raimondo Betti from Columbia University and Nimalsiri Rajapakse from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver. He is principal investigator in the Fapesp funded CCES, Computing Center for Engineering and Sciences. In 2016 he was awarded by Unicamp the ?Zeferino Vaz? academic recognition award.
