I am a Botanist interested in systematics, biogeography, evolution, conservation and applied uses of the plants, specially South American Subtropical and Temperate flora. Major research interests include systematics and evolution of Asteraceae; genetic resources and pre-breeding of crop wild relatives; sustainable management and use of the palm landscapes from Southern Brazil; and curation and exploration of herbaria data. I obtained my Bachelor and Licenciate degree in Biology from Universidade Federal de Pelotas, Master in Botany from Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro, and PhD from Universidade de São Paulo with sandwich PhD at Gothenburg University, Sweden. Currently, I am a researcher at Embrapa Clima Temperado, Pelotas, Brazil.
