About me

I’m an oceanographer at the Universidade de São Paulo (USP), in Brazil. With financial support from FAPESP, Instituto Serrapilheira and Pró-Reitoria de Pesquisa, I’m bulding the f-lab (Multiscale Ocean & Climate Physics Laboratory)—my research group at USP.

Originally from São Paulo and a graduate of USP, I earned in 2018 a Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California San Diego. Prior to returning to USP as faculty, in 2023, I did a postdoc at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (2018-2020) and spent 2.5 years as faculty at University of Connecticut (2020-2023).


I’m always looking for motivated people to work with. Please, email me if you’d like to join my group or collaborate on a project.

I’m actively recruiting a postdoc and graduate students with strong background in physics, math and programming. No previous experience with Oceanography or GFD required. Email me if interested.
