I am a chemist graduated at the Federal University of Sao Carlos in Brazil.&#10;My PhD in Chemistry of Natural Products was focused on searching for new bioactive compounds with insecticides properties. I have some patents using flavonoids complexed with transitions metals on new insecticides registered in 2013 and 2014. I gained part of my PhD at San Pablo University in Madrid, Spain, with the support of the Brazilian Air Force and EAD-CASA. There I used methods in biotechnology to study the rhizosphere and how to increase the production of morphine from the Papaver somniferum using PGPR bacteria. In 2013 I joined to the Biointeractions and Crop Protection (BCCP) team at Rothamsted Research as a chemical ecologist.&#10;My expertise areas are: chromatography methods of isolation of organic compounds from plants, fungus, bacteria and mammals; structural determination of organic compounds using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and other spectrometric tools; analysis of semiochemicals from plants with agricultural and husbandry interest, identification and characterization of elicitors involved in (a)biotic stress in plants; synthesis of semiochemicals and metallic complex as a insecticides.

Atta genera are considered between the most important plagues, such in Agricultural, pasture and reforesting program, since they defoliate the plants reducing their productivity or killing them. Thus, studies that can control specifically leaf-cutting ant without alter the environment is highly recommended. This project has as subject to obtain natural products with insecticide and/or f...

Leaf-cutting ants are considered plagues and they yield serious problems to agriculture. Nowadays, study has been done to use natural products from plants as an alternative method to control these insects, in order to cause low impact to the environments than the synthetics insecticides. The synthesis do organic compounds complexed to metals have yielded products with higher activity an...
