I attended Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where I received my B.S. in chemical engineering. I am passionate about the development of new materials and for finding what great product can be enabled by those. This passion led me to, after my BSc and a brief experience in the petrochemical industry to pursue graduate studies in Polymer & Chemical Engineering. I graduated in May 2015 with a PhD in Chemical Engineering focused in polymerization processes and have previously completed a research-focused in polymers Master degree and an industrial-focused Masters. 

I live in New York but I grew up in sunny Rio de Janeiro. I am moved by sunlight and marine water. I love to travel, swim and smile. Also, discover new life stories, new tastes and new cultures is a passion.
