Google Scholar Profile


I’m a forest engineer. I finished my doctorate in forest resources in 2015 at the University of São Paulo (USP / ESALQ). During the doctorate, I did a research internship at CIRAD (Montpellier-Fr). I like to research different subjects. However, my main area of activity is forestry and functional ecology of monospecific and multispecific forest plantations. My research involves nutrient cycling, biological nitrogen fixation and the effect of trees on the environment.

Research Areas:

  • Forestry and Ecology

Current N-related Projects:

  • Effects of tree legumes on the environment
