Environmental engineer graduated at PUC-Campinas, with MSc and PhD in Agricultural Systems Engineering from ESALQ/USP. Has over 10 years of experience in agrometeorology, crop modelling and climate risk. Former group leader of the Group of Research and Experimentation in Agricultural Modelling (GEPEMA) at ESALQ/USP. Was a guest PhD researcher at Wageningen University in 2016, developing 1D agrohydrological and 3D Functional-Structural Plant models for sugarcane. In 2018, was a Researcher at FarmersEdge developing dynamic models for precision agriculture applications. From 2019, has worked as a postdoctoral researcher at University of Campinas (UNICAMP/FEAGRI) and University of Leeds (CIG), focusing on modelling the climate impacts on crops. Currently is a scientific staff at the Institute of Crop Science and Resource Conservation (INRES), University of Bonn, where has been developing the SIMPLACE modelling platform. Has proficiency in crop modelling, HPC, programming languages (R, Python, FORTRAN, VBA), version control (git), GIS, agrometeorology and soil-plant-atmosphere biophysics.
