Birthplace: Brazil

Graduated in BSc in Physics from the University of São Paulo (1966), Master in Physics from the University of São Paulo (1970) and Ph.D. in astrophysics from the University of Paris-7 (1983). After a career of several years as Professor at the University of Sao Paulo - initially at the Institute of Physics and later the Institute of Astronomy and Geophysics, he moved in 1986 to the National Institute for Space Research (INPE) where he is Senior researcher. He was Head of the Astrophysics Division and Coordinator of the Graduate Program in Astrophysics at INPE. Has experience in the field of astronomy, with emphasis on extragalactic astrophysics, focusing mainly on the following topics: clusters of galaxies, elliptical galaxies and evolution of galaxies and cosmology. He has also been working on projects of the Virtual Observatory, mainly through the project BraVO/Inpe. He joined the National Institute of Science and Technology in Astrophysics (INCT-A), being member of its Steering Committee. He joined the Center for Theoretical Astrophysics at Universidade Cruzeiro do Sul. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
