Brazilian geophysicist and traveler, enjoys hiking, explore caves and waterfalls. I first started my studies in Geophysics using Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) to investigate the sedimentary architecture of both lake and river environments. Then, during master, I started to work with seismic-stratigraphy interpretation at deep-waters basins and seamounts on the Brazilian Equatorial Margin (BEM). This project was attached to International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP). Currently, I’m applying my skills as a seismic interpreter to identify potential geohazards at the BEM. I was a member of a Junior Enterprise during undergraduate course in which I acquired skills in several geophysical methods. B.Sc. in Geophysics at the University of Brasília (Brazil), 2015. Thesis title: Determination of radar facies patterns in a river point bar on the Araguaia River (original title in Portuguese). MSc. in Geodynamics and Geophysics at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (Brazil), 2017. Thesis title: Seismic-stratigraphy interpretation in a deep-water basin on The Brazilian Equatorial Margin: Eastern portion of the Potiguar basin and Touros High (original title in Portuguese). Ph.D Student in Earth Sciences at the University of Firenze, 2020-2023. Thesis title: Potential geohazards along the Brazilian Equatorial Margin – Insights from offshore data across the Potiguar Basin.
