He holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (2000), a master’s degree in sciences from the same university (2002), and a PhD in polymer science and technology from Cornell University and Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (2007), as well as postdoctoral study at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (2009). He is currently assistant professor at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro. He has experience in chemistry, with emphasis in coordination chemistry and catalysis applied to polymer synthesis. His research interests include the synthesis and spectroscopic characterization of biodegradable polyesters and polyolefins, synthesis of nanocomposites by in situ polymerization and development of strategies to obtain new ambident and polybasic ligands for catalysis.
