I am a Professor in Geomorphology and Environment at the Department of Environmental Sciences, Federal University of São Paulo (Unifesp) and researcher at Graduate Program of Geoscience, São Paulo University (USP), both in Brazil. Bachelor in Geography (2007) and doctor in Geoscience and Environment (2014) from the São Paulo State University (Unesp), with an abroad internship at the University of Vermont (US). Postdoctoral researcher at Institute of Geoscience (IGc-USP) and Department of Earth Science and Engineering of the Imperial College London (2015-2017). I am associated with the Laboratory of Gamma Spectrometry and Luminescence (LEGaL-USP), Quaternary Study Group (Unesp) and member of the research group Fluvial Systems and Environment of the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq). My research interest is Earth surface processes, fluvial geomorphology, landscape evolution, tropical rivers and wetlands, luminescence dating, cosmogenic nuclides, geomorphological mapping, environmental planning, remote sensing and GIS.

The debate about the Amazonia landscape evolution has been highlighted in the last two decades, which the scientific advances agree that biotic and abiotic evolution might be intimately related. The main hypothesis argue that the transcontinental Amazonian fluvial system was established in the late Miocene and its evolution should be strongly influenced by tectonic, sea level and/or cli...
The Amazon basin is the largest in the world and cradle to one of the most biodiverse ecosystems on Earth. Biogeographical studies have suggested that the evolution of the Amazonian river system played a critical role for species diversification. The main hypotheses suggest that modern Amazonian river system acquired its transcontinental W-E configuration during the Late Neogene due to ...
