Yasmin Cristhine de Souza Melo currently is coursing the forth year of environmental engineering in University of São Paulo, where she is a member of CBSin (Club of Synthetic Biology). She studied in CEFET MG (Federal Center of Technologic Education of Minas Gerais) where did a cientific initiation in meteorology's area (financed by FAPEMIG) and where was a monitor of physics. Currently she is carrying out research, funded by FAPESP, on the use of nanoparticles in the enzymatic hydrolysis of lignocellulosic biomass for the production of biofuels.

Fossil fuels are currently the main pillars of the world energy matrix, which brings with it two problems: the depletion of resources in the face of growing demand and the emission of air pollutants. In this context, the use of agricultural surpluses such as lignocellulosic biomass demonstrates a high potential for biofuels production as a sustainable energy alternative. Considering the...
