Chemical Engineer graduated from Universidade Federal Fluminense (UFF) in 2010. From 2011 to 2012 I worked on a research project at the National Institute of Technology (INT) in partnership with Petrobras studying the production of acrylic acid from propane. In 2013, I obtained my Master's degree in Chemical Engineering from UFF under the supervision of Dr. Lisiane Mattos (UFF) and Dr. Fabio Noronha (INT) studying metal catalysts supported in cerium oxide for reforming ethanol at low temperature. In 2018 I concluded my PhD at the Military Engineering Institute (IME), researching the development of compact processors for hydrogen production from ethanol reforming using monolithic supported catalysts under the supervision of Dr. Luiz Borges (IME) and Dr. Fabio Noronha ( INT). Through the "Science Without Borders" program, I completed a PhD (2016) sandwich at Columbia University (NYC) in Dr. Robert Farrauto's research group. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
The research plan is divided in three main aprts. The first one consists on the development of synthesis methods of heterogeneous catalysts supported in mixed oxides. In the second part a detailed characterization will be carried out involving several techniques such as BET, XRD, quimissorption, electron microscopy, etc. The final part is testing activity and selectivity of catalysts fo...
