Bachelor of Science on Physics from Universidade Federal da Bahia (2010). Ph.D degree on Space Geophysics (2015) at the National Institute for Space Research (Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais, INPE). Worked for one year as research assistant at NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), USA, during his Ph.D period. Worked as visiting researcher also at NASA/GSFC for a 4 months period (2016). Worked as visiting researcher at West Virginia University, USA, during 7 months (2018). His main research interests are on 1) magnetic reconnection at the Earth's dayside magnetopause using both in situ observations and numerical simulations, 2) physical processes that lead to either loss or acceleration of electrically charged particles trapped in the Earth's Van Allen radiation belts, and 3) ground induced currents.
