Interests and expertise

I am a Research Fellow at the Nature-based Solutions (NbSI) and Oxford Net Zero (ONZ) Initiatives. My research interests focus on scenarios modelling for environmental and climate policy evaluation, with a particular emphasis on Brazil. I have experience using regional economic land-use models to provide quantitative science-based results to Brazilian stakeholders and policymakers. As part of the NbSI and ONZ, I am interested in understanding the synergies and trade-offs between net zero policies and biodiversity conservation, including the role of Nature-based Solutions in climate mitigation efforts. I am also interested in evaluating policies regarding ecosystem protection connected to forest-risk supply chain agreements.

Currently, I am advising Brazil’s Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation on generating technical inputs that can be used to update the country’s NDC and the net zero plan. I am part of a team of researchers working on the development of SINAPSE 2.0, a scenarios modelling platform for climate and environmental policy evaluation in Brazil.


My background is Mathematics and I have a Master and a PhD in Applied Computing from Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research on unconstrained global optimization. I am an environmental scientist by training with experience in regional economic land use modeling for quantitative policy evaluation.
