PhD student at the School of Chemical Engineering of the University of Campinas (FAPESP fellowship). He received his BS and MS in Chemical Engineering from the same school. In his MS, he worked in the development, simulation, and technoeconomic analysis of biorefineries, and in his PhD he is working with advanced energy storage systems. Other experiences include: four years of Junior Research on Mathematics (UFMG in Belo Horizonte and Unimontes in Montes Claros, both in Brazil), two years of Undergraduate Research (UNICAMP in Campinas, Brazil), eleven months working with R&D at Desmet Ballestra (Zaventem, Belgium) and one year working as an intern of Process Engineering and Process Simulation at the Brazilian Bioethanol Science and Technology Lab (Campinas, Brazil). Completed one year of the Master of Chemical Engineering at KU LEUVEN (Leuven, Belgium) as an exchange student, holding a scholarship of the Science Without Borders program (CNPq, Brazil).

Electricity will move from 18 to 50% of the worldwide matrix and renewable sources of energy are expected to quadruplicate by 2050, but CO2 emissions are also expected to be half of today's value. In this scenario it is imperative to build novel solutions for energy storage still unavailable today that can cope with the predicted demands. Among the existent technologies in batteries, th...
Ethyl levulinate is a derivative of levulinic acid with potential to be used in the near future as a diesel additive because of its unique characteristics. Produced exclusively from renewable origins, ethyl levulinate is the product of the esterification of ethanol with levulinic acid, being the later obtained from hydrolysis of biomass rich in cellulose. However, the large scale produc...
