Birthplace: Brazil

My work related to Astronomy started even before I joined the Bachelor of Astronomy at IAG-USP, when I developed, in my final paper at the mechatronics technician, a prototype of an automated telescope base. In the first months after joining the Bachelor's Degree I started to participate in the meetings of the research group of Professor Gastão and, in the second semester, I started a teaching project with Professor Jane, developing a mini-course for high school covering physics contents and mathematics with concepts of astronomy. Right after this project, I started the scientific initiation work guided by professor Gastão, counting first with PIBIC scholarship and then with FAPESP scholarship, in which I studied the dynamic evolution of galaxies in clusters. This study was both theoretical, deducing the equation of motion, and developing a semi-analytical model in Python and performing simulations of N-bodies with the Gadget2 code. My areas of interest involve Extragalactic Astrophysics, studying the evolution of structures in the Universe. I am also interested in teaching and scientific dissemination.
