master's at Geosciences from Universidade Federal do Pará (1990) and ph.d. at Philosophy Doctor In Sciences from University Of Colorado At Boulder (1996). Has experience in Geosciences, focusing on Stratigraphic, acting on the following subjects: ambiente deposicional, sedimentologia, estratigrafia, quaternário and estrutura sedimentar.

The Amazon basin supports the largest continuous tropical rain forest of the world, and harbors a spectacular species diversity of both plants and animals. This very high diversity is a partial cause for the incomplete understanding of how Amazonian forest communities are assembled, and how the species are distributed in space. A wide range of environmental parameters should be investig...
The record of neotectonic activity has increased in northeastern Brazil. The Paraíba Basin was the last bridge connecting the Sulamerican and African plates, representing an area that remained longer tectonically active during the continental break up. Previous studies in this area have demonstrated strong tectonic control in deposits formed from the Miocene, being of interest for inve...
Megafan consists of a large-scale depositional system with sedimentological, stratigraphic and morphological characteristics still poorly documented in both modern and ancient environments. In Brazil, the Taquari megafan in the Pantanal Matogrossense is the only known record of this type of depostional system. Preliminary analysis of remote sensing data suggests the presence of a remark...

Miocene and post-Miocene deposits represented by the Barreiras Formation and the Post-Barreiras Sediments are dominant along the northern and northeastern Brazilian coast. In addition to eustatic causes, changes in relative sea level recorded in these strata have been related to tectonic effects. In the particular instance of the northeastern Brazilian coast, there are studies highlight...
The evolution of Amazonian ecosystems has been the subject of international scientific interest. Two projects now under coordination of the beneficiary of the requested fellowship are providing a large volume of information regarding the evolution of depositional systems in the region and its impacts on the origin of large patches of savanna that are in sharp contrast with their surroun...
