Bachelor (2006), Master (2009) and Doctor (2013) in Chemistry from the University of São Paulo, at the São Carlos Chemistry Institute (IQSC-USP). I have experience in the field of Chemistry, with an emphasis on Inorganic and Organic Chemistry (Catalysis). I completed his Master's and PhD in Inorganic Chemistry (Kinetics and Mechanisms of Reactions involving radicals, metalloproteins and nitric oxide transfer) under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Douglas Wagner Franco. Subsequently, I completed a post-doctoral internship (2013-2017) in the Organic Synthesis Group at IQSC-USP, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Antonio Carlos Bender Burtoloso (utilization of plant biomass and catalysis), with a post-doctoral internship period abroad (2015-2016) at the University of California, Santa Barbara, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Peter C. Ford (lignin depolymerization and catalysis). He worked as an associate researcher (PNPD/Capes Scholarship) at IBILCE/UNESP in São José do Rio Preto associated with the Bioenergy Laboratory under the responsibility of Prof. Dr. Maurício Boscolo (2018-2023) working on catalytic reactions of alcohols (ethanol, 1-butanol and fusel oil components) to obtain products with high added value. I works mainly in the area of homo and heterogeneous catalysis (metallic catalysts) for the development of new reactions and methodologies aimed at using alcohols (ethanol, 1-butanol and fusel oil) and molecules from plant biomass (levulinic acid, gamma-valerolactone, pyrrolidones and lignin) to obtain high-value organic building blocks.
