About

Graduated in Agronomy from Universidade Federal de Viçosa, and Ph.D. in Crop Production (Plant Physiology), both from Universidade Estadual do Norte Fluminense Darcy Ribeiro - UENF. Half of the doctorate degree was obtained at the Centre for Developmental Biology, Laboratory of Plant Development, Gulbenkian Institute for Science under supervision of Dr José Alberto Feijo, where he remained in the post-doctoral positon for three years. Still in Portugal was substitute teacher at the Center for Biological Engineering, Faculty of Sciences / University of Lisbon, teaching the disciplines of Plant Physiology and Plant Nutrition. Participated in several scientific projects, bidirectional cooperation (FCT-CAPES) and inter-institutional in Brazil. Has experience in Agronomy and Biology, with emphasis on soil microbiology and biochemistry, and ecophysiology of plant-microbe interaction. Currently, is Associated Professor and Coordinator of PhD in Ecosystems Ecology of the University of Vila Velha (UVV-ES). His lab work on: 1. Characterization of proton pumps and transporters in arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis, 2. Study of ion dynamics and gene expression in development and symbiotic events, 3. Analysis and purification of proteins / signaling molecules of plant roots with arbuscular mycorrhizal functions in the interaction, 4. Bioaccumulation of metals by filamentous fungi, specifically, the ectomycorrhizal fungi.
