PhD in Geological Sciences and Geotechnologies (Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca) and Professor at the Instituto de Geociências e Ciências Exatas (São Paulo State University). Specialist in paleomagnetism and rock magnetism, and their application to geological problems. Current interests include Cenozoic magnetostratigraphy, paleoclimatology and tectonics of the Alpine orogenic belt; variations in the intensity of Earth's magnetic field and the magnetic recording in sediments; Quaternary stratigraphy; response of natural systems to tectonic and climatic forcing; dating of archaeological and paleontological sites.

The Rio Claro Formation is a Cenozoic unit deposited on Paleozoic sediments of the Paraná Basin. Located in the geomorphological province of Paulista Peripheral Depression, center-east of São Paulo state, the unit is composed of fluvial origin deposits delimited by topographic, lithologic and structural conditioners. Many authors proposed ages for the Rio Claro Fm. based on correlations...
A recent model suggests a connection between geomagnetism and the biological innovation known as Cambrian Explosion, occurred at ca 542 million years (Ma). The hypothesis relies on the analysis of the environmental pressure which may have been produced in the Ediacaran fauna by an extraordinarily high rate of polarity inversions of the Earth's magnetic field, in order of 20-24 per Ma. H...
The Brazilian Northeast presents an extensive geological history related to divergent tectonic events and formation of rift sequences responsible for the separation of South American and African continents during the Cretaceous. These events led to the formation of a series of sedimentary basins called the Northeast Brazilian Interior Basins, among which, the basins of Iguatu. The Iguat...
