Currently 'PhD candidate', at the Faculty of Built Environment of the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia. Also a 'Sessional Academic' and 'Research Assistant' at the same faculty.

Involved with built environment sustainability since 2003. 15 years of industry career with broad experience in rating/certification schemes (AQUA-HQE, LEED, PBE Edifica, BREEAM, ISO 14.001), sustainability guides and plans for buildings, precincts and construction sites, indoor and outdoor environmental comfort, green roofs and living walls, ecodesign, waste management plans and building/urban acoustics. As a sustainability consultant, I've been part of medium and large-sized projects all over Brazil, including the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and the 2014 Soccer World Cup. I've been teaching on courses related to my experience since 2011.

As an academic and researcher, my interests are in most topics concerning 'built environment sustainability', with special focus on both building and urban scale, such as: urban sustainability, regenerative approach, climate change, life cycle analysis, urban metabolism, livability, mobility, urban transitions, green infrastructure, rating systems, urban heat island, etc.
