Carlos Alberto Martinez y Huaman


Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Faculdade de Filosofia, Ciências e Letras de Ribeirão Preto (FFCLRP)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Peru

He holds a degree in Agronomy from UNHEVAL (1977), a Masters in Agricultural Production from UNALM (1988), and a Ph.D. in Plant Physiology from the Federal University of Viçosa (1994), with a scholarship from the Latin American Botany Network. He is currently an Associate Professor MS-5 (3) at the University of São Paulo, Ribeirão Preto Campus (USP / RP). He works in the area of Plant Physiology and Crop Physiology, mainly on the following topics: Ecophysiology of photosynthesis and carbon sequestration; Physiology of plants under abiotic stress; Plant physiology in response to climate change; Photosynthesis and productivity of tropical and subtropical plants. Pioneer in Brazil in the use of Open Top Chambers (OTC), Free-air Carbon Dioxide Enrichment (FACE), and Temperature Free-air Controlled Enhancement (T-FACE) systems to study plant responses in future climate simulation. Research on abiotic stress aims at the physiological and biochemical characterization of genetic variability and resistance mechanisms of plants to light, water, oxidative, saline, and thermal stress. Research on the biological impact of global environmental change aims to elucidate the effects of increased CO2, temperature, and water restriction on the physiology and productivity of cultivated plants, pastures, and forest species, in a future climate simulation. Ad hoc consultant for FAPESP, CNPq, FAPEMIG, FAPESB, The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research, and scientific revisor for several national and international journals. He was the Coordinator of the Biological Sciences Course at USP / RP, leading the process of reformulating the Course. He was President of the FFCLRP Graduation Committee and a Member of the USP Graduation Council. Member of the Brazilian Society of Plant Physiology, American Society of Plant Biologists, and the International Society of Photosynthesis Research. He was President of the São Paulo Botanical Society. He coordinated the thematic project in the FAPESP Research Program on Global Climate Change. He coordinated a project on climate change financed by CNPq / ANA / CAPES. It maintains research collaboration with several Brazilian institutions and international collaboration with the University of Illinois, Campus Urbana (UIUC); University of Illinois, Campus Chicago (UIC); University of Columbia, New York; United States Department of Agriculture, USA; University of Barcelona; Universitat Rovira i Virgili, Spain; Instituto di Biometeorologia, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Italy.
