Environmental engineer graduated at PUC-Campinas, with MSc and PhD in Agricultural Systems Engineering from ESALQ/USP. Has 10+ years of experience in agrometeorology, crop modelling and climate risk. Was a guest PhD researcher at Wageningen University in 2016, developing 1D agrohydrological and 3D Functional-Structural Plant models for sugarcane. In 2018, worked as 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, agrometeorology and soil-plant-atmosphere biophysics, programming languages (R, Python, FORTRAN, Java), cloud computing (AWS and HPCs), version control (git) and geospatial tools.

Currently working on development and testing of the SIMPLACE framework and model applications of LAP/INRES group.
