With a Master’s degree in Environmental Systems Analysis and Modelling (UFMG, 2010), a PhD in Meteorology Applied to Forestry Sciences (UFV, 2019) and a Post-Doctorate in Forest Fire Management (ESAC-IPC), her professional career is based on research and project management in landscape management and environmental economics, namely the ecology and economics of fire in forest environments. He has experience in geographic databases, spatial and numerical simulation models of changes in land use and land cover, analyses and estimates of agricultural and forestry profitability, carbon balance and valuation of ecosystem services. Through the use of geotechnologies (TIG and GIS), the results of his research are a tool for designing public policies and supporting decision-making in business sectors such as forestry and agriculture, and for environmental managers.

Areas of interest: GIS, Geostatistics, Spatial Simulation, Forest Management, Forest Fire Behaviour.
