Currently works as Assistant Professor at Center of Nuclear Energy in Agriculture (CENA), University of Sao Paulo (USP) in Piracicaba, Sao Paulo, Brazil. His scientific focus areas are plant nutrition and isotope techniques (e.g., δ15N ? and δ13C ?) related to assessment of nutritional plant status, water and nutrient use efficiency. He has been studying mineral nutrition of plants, especially focusing on nutritional physiology of crop yields and nutrient uptake efficiency, ion uptake kinetics and nutrients long distance transport (root-to-shoot translocation). In parallel, he?s been involved in some research projects aimed at unraveling, on the one hand, the physiological roles of nutrients on tolerance to water stress and the other to cope with heavy metal-induced stress.

Cadmium (Cd) difficult the development of plants, whereupon can be minimized by sulfur (S) supply to plants grown in contaminated environments and the use of tolerant genotypes with high mass production for phytoremediation. The main objective is to evaluate the effect of S on the Cd uptake and its distribution on plant tissue, evaluate the ultra-structural changes on the root and leave...

Nickel (Ni) is an essential element for the metabolism of plants, being considered a micronutrient. It is a structural component of urease and hydrogenase, which in turn perform nitrogen (N) metabolism in many legume species. The objective of this work is to evaluate the application of Ni sources in the treatment of seed or leaf (in V4), if there are differences in the agronomic efficie...
In Brazil, fertilizer application is one of the main factors for achieving high productivity in commercial Eucalyptus plantations, since it is frequently carried out in soils with water stress and low chemical fertility. Potassium (K) is the most required macronutrient by the Eucalyptus plant, while sodium (Na), can partially substitute some physiologic functions of K, influencing direc...
Biological nitrogen fixation (BNF) is the main source of nitrogen (N) uptake and assimilation by soybean crop. The hypothesis to be verified is whether the mineral-N supply as fertilizer can halt nodulation and N-metabolism as well as reducing gains yield and shoot biomass. The objectives of this work are to evaluate the main effect of BNF, the application of mineral nitrogen at sowing,...

The potential use of nanoparticles (NPs) as a nutrient for seed treatment has been bringing much interest in the scientific community. The use of NPs in agriculture is promising, but there is a lack of information about their interaction with plants as well as its potential to boost plant growth and yield. Seed treatment with cobalt, molybdenum Bradyrhizobium strains, and nickel (Ni) h...
The cadmium (Cd) concentration in the environment has increased in the last few years, resulting in serious socio-environmental problems such as lower mass production from plants cultivated in contaminated areas and the entry of these toxic elements into the food chain through the consumption of contaminated foods, which can cause numerous health problems. Thus, the use of plants able t...
Most soils in the world have low phosphate (Pi) availability, which limits plant growth. Among phosphorus (P) pools in soil, P immobilized by microorganisms stands out for its importance in P cycling in soil as well as its role as a P reserve for plants. In this context, mycorrhizal fungi (MF) have shown beneficial effects on Pi uptake by plants, by promoting P mineralization/solubiliza...
