Associate Professor at the Federal University of ABC (UFABC), bachelor in Chemistry 1999) , Master (2002) and PhD (2006) in Sciences (Physical Chemistry) by IQSC / USP, with stage in Università di Pisa, Italy.

Computational simulations are used in order to study the electronic properties of molecules, particularly dyes, aiming to propose new molecules to be employed as photosensitizers in photodynamic therapy and photoelectronic devices. Electronic and structural properties, as well as adsorption processes and reaction mechanisms have been studied mainly by means of Density Functional Theory and the PCM continuous solvation model.
