Postdoc at the University of São Paulo (CENA / USP), Doctor of Science at the University of São Paulo (CENA / USP), Master in Plant Biodiversity and Environment at the Institute of Botany of São Paulo (IBT / SP), graduated in Geosciences at the University of São Paulo (IGc / USP) and also in Biological Sciences at the Mackenzie University (UPM). With great interest in environmental issues, his research has two main focuses, namely: i) effects of air pollution on natural and urban ecosystems and ii) understanding of ecological patterns and processes, with an emphasis on biogeochemical cycling, climate change and nature conservation (Bio and Geo conservation). Among the main themes of their work and guidelines are: Environmental Pollution, Ecosystem Ecology, stable isotopes, Biogeochemical Cycles, Climate Change, Adaptations to Ecosystem-Based Climate Change (AbE), Nature-based Solutions (NbS) and Conservation of Nature. With teaching experience in undergraduate courses in Biological Sciences, Environmental and Civil Engineering and Technology in Environmental Management, the teacher has more than 50 CBT guidelines and more than 60 supervisions in Scientific Initiation, demonstrating an important contribution in the training of human resources. In the graduate course 'Lato sensu', Maurício has already served as a professor and member of the Structuring Teaching Nucleus (NDE) of the Environmental Engineering course. In the 'Stricto sensu', the researcher has 8 master's and 2 doctoral's degree. With an international network of collaborators, the professor has publications in important scientific journals such as SCIENCE and ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, highlighting the internationalization of his scientific research. For his recognition in teaching, research and extension, Maurício was awarded twice as 'Professor 10' at Nove de Julho University. Currently, the professor organizes a collection on Urban Arborization with the collaboration of more than 500 Brazilian and international researchers (NASA, HARVARD UNIVERSITY), which has the support of entities such as: UN Environment, FAO, ICLEI, Society of Ecology of Brazil, among others.
