Has experience in Chemistry, with emphasis on Inorganic Chemistry and Catalysis. Post-doctoral fellow (2013-2017) in the IQSC-USP Organic Synthesis Group, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Antonio Carlos Bender Burtoloso, with a one year experience as visiting researcher (2015-2016) at the University of California, Santa Barbara, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Peter C. Ford. Currently, post-doctorate PNPD / Capes at IBILCE / UNESP in São José do Rio Preto, associated with the Bioenergy Laboratory under the responsibility of Prof. Dr. Maurício Boscolo. Research focus are mainly in the area of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis (metallic catalysts) for the development of new reactions and methodologies for the use of plant biomass.

The present research project aims the use of sugarcane-derived biomass, more specifically the product of its acid hydrolysis, to obtain chemical products with high added value such as gama-valerolactones, pyrrolidones and compounds from lignin hydrogenolysis. For this purpose, metallic catalysts based on iron, nickel and ruthenium as well as formic acid as hydrogen/hydride source, will ...
The present research Project aims the utilization of porous metal oxides (PMO) as heterogeneous catalysts for lignin hydrogenolysis reaction (generating phenols as main products) and model molecules for lignin chemical bonds (mostly aryl-aryl and aryl-O-aryl) using subcritical water/formic acid as solvent and hydrogen source respectively. The PMOs proposed will be doped with the transi...
