Birthplace: Brazil

Associate professor at the Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP) - Faculty of Sciences - Department of Physical Education (Bauru - SP, Brazil) and professor of the graduate program in Human Movement Sciences at the UNESP (Capes - 5). He has a degree in Physical Education (2004) and s master degree in Human Motor Sciences (2007) by the UNESP. He completed a double Ph.D. in Human Movement Science at the UNESP (2012) and at the Vrije University (Amsterdam, the Netherlands 2013). Also, he completed the postdoctoral fellowship in Physical Education at the UNESP (2015). He is coordinator of Human Movement research Laboratory (MOVI-LAB) and community project ATIVA PARKINSON. Also, he is member of International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society, International Society for Posture and Gait Research, International Society of Biomechanics; Brazilian Society of Motor Behavior, Brazilian Society of Biomechanics. Currently, he is vice-chief of the Department of Physical Education, vice-president of the Brazilian Society of Motor Behavior, and editor-in-chief of the Brazilian Journal of Motor Behavior. He performed a research internship abroad in the VU Amsterdam University - Amsterdam - The Netherlands, Purdue University - West Lafayette - The United States of America and University of Porto - Porto - Portugal. The underlying principle of the his research endeavor has been to understand the neuromechanisms of human movements. Our group studies how the human movement is planned and controlled, especially in the context of ageing, movement disorders and sports performance. Our research?s approach consists of a combination of experimental, interventional and clinical studies aiming at unraveling the interplay between neural, perceptual and motor systems and considering the organismic, task-related, and environmental constraints. These approaches are developed to promote prevention, diagnostic, intervention and rehabilitation programs for improving the daily-life function in movement disorders population and to improve performance during sports practice. To achieve those aims, the studies employ neuromechanical (e.g., motion capture tools, EEG and EMG) and perceptual (e.g., eye-tracking) methodologies to understand human movement and related disorders. e-mail: (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
