He is currently professor at Department of Physics, FederalUniversity of São Carlos, Brazil. He received his PhD in Materials and Engineeringfrom São Carlos School of Engineering, University of São Paulo (Brazil) with a Post-doctoral fellowship in the Laboratory for Multifunctional Materials, Department of Materials, at ETH Zürich, Switzerland. His research interests mostly deals with synthesis of oxide compounds via chemical methods and the characterization of thesecompounds by X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS), photoluminescence, transmission and scanning electron microscopy and the electrical gas sensing properties of these oxide compounds.

|Acetone sensor could soon help diabetics self-monitor blood sugar levels|
Gas sensor devices display a variety of applications, ranging from environmental monitoring to healthcare. The main attractive of these devices, in the healthcare, is the possibility of performing noninvasive diagnosis of some diseases. Diabetes is a lifelong condition that may cause death and seriously affects the quality of life of a rapidly growing number of peoples. Acetone is a sel...
Nowadays, the high agricultural productivity is related to use of the fertilizers, mainly the fertilizer nitrogen which are essentials for large crops, such as corn and rice. The main challenge in this area consists to improve the harnessing of the fertilizers, due the large losses of the nitrogen through volatilization process. This process consists in the oxidation of these sources on...
Gas detection is important for controlling industrial, and vehicle emissions, agricultural residues, and environmental control. In last decades, several semiconducting oxides have been used to detect dangerous or toxic gases. The excellent gas sensing performance of these gas sensor devices have observed at high temperatures (~250oC), which forbids the use for the detection of flammable...
