About

Since 1999, after a previous 18 years industry-based work, he started dedicating to the academic sector, being currently an associate professor at Ouro Preto School of Mines (a part of the Federal University of Ouro Preto). He has expertise in mining engineering, with emphasis in mineral processing, acting mainly in the following subjects: interfacial phenomena, mathematical methods and modeling, mineral process development, processing plant design, rotary and fluidized bed driers sizing, and granular media dynamic. He has four pending patents, embracing: a pyrometallurgical zinc reduction process for flue dust reuse, a bioactivated spontaneous sintering process of steelmaking wastes, an expansive agent for rock splitting and demolition and new biodiesel heterogeneous catalysts obtained from engineered mining wastes. As hobby activities are concerned he likes outdoor hiking, science issues, poetry, drawing, oil painting, and industrial arts, like stonemasonry. In 2012 he has founded Jornada Lúcida Editora, as part of a long-term life plan.
