Braneworld scenarios consider our observable universe as a brane embedded in a 5D space, named bulk. In this work, we derive the field equations of a braneworld model in a generalized gravitational theory, namely f ( R, T) gravity, with R and T representing the Ricci scalar and the trace of the energy-momentum tensor, respectively. The cosmological parameters obtained from this approach are in agreement with recent constraints from type Ia supernovae data, baryon acoustic oscillations and cosmic microwave background observations, favouring such an alternative description of the universe dynamics.
