Background and activities

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Industrial Ecology Programme. My research is currently focused on life-cycle assessment of biofuels and sustainable land management systems for biofuels, mapping of land availability and biomass resource potentials to address the challenges related to climate change mitigation.

 

Background

I worked for eight years at the Brazilian Biorenewables National Laboratory, in Campinas, Brazil. My research has been focused on LCA, S-LCA, IOA, and TEA for the assessment of technologies involved mainly in biofuel production. My publications are mainly related to modeling and simulation tools applied to evaluate the impacts of bioenergy systems, integrating biomass availability, agricultural production models, and different industrial conversion pathways.
