Biography

I completed a Geology BSc in University of Sao Paulo in December 2012. As an undergraduate, I was part of a 18 months FAPESP-funded research project about the petrogenesis of high-grade metamorphic rocks in southwest Minas Gerais, Brazil, which was presented as my final monograph. I then joined UCD as a PhD student in January 2014, with CAPES/Science Without Borders funding. Following my interest in petrogenetic processes, my research is about the formation of rare-element granitic pegmatites in association with the Leinster Granite in southeast Ireland. My interests include useful tools to understand how rocks form, as whole-rock and mineral geochemistry, trace element modelling, isotope geochemistry and geochronology.
