BS in Physics with an emphasis on Basic Research in 2006 from the University of São Paulo. I studied at the Nuclear and Energy Research Institute (IPEN) from 2004 to 2012, obtaining the Master degree in 2008 and PhD degree in 2012. I worked with different techniques such as Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) applied to biophotonics studies.
I have experience in basic and applied research research and development on business and industrial environment having worked for Natura Innovation and Products Technology. In basic research I develop a project using OCT to characterize the skin of Brazilian women in academic partnership.
In applied research, developed skin and hair characterization projects in order to create product recommendation tools for sales assistance, and an evaluation and range of damage assessment in hair through tactile feedback that resulted in a patent filed internationally. I carried out research in partnership with the MIT Media Lab to develop objective evaluation methods of hair using spectroscopic and optical techniques.
In academic research, I worked 1 year as a researcher fellow at the Brazilian National Metrology Institute (INMETRO), for a partnership project with the Institute of Physics and the School of Engineering of USP in São Carlos, in primary standard of time and frequency. I spend 1 year as Postdoc Researcher on the Center for Laser and Application at IPEN developing research in Biophotonics for diagnostic purposes.
Currently, I am a full professor and researcher of Biomedical Engineering Program at Universidade Brasil, installed on a resource-depleted region, developing research on optical diagnostics for improvement of health care.
