Hi there, welcome!

I’m a final-year PhD student (or ‘candidate’) in Astronomy at Universidade de São Paulo (USP) in Brasil under supervision of Prof. Silvia Rossi. My research focuses on the field of Galactic Archaeology, but mostly on the Milky Way’s halo, including metal-poor stars, stellar streams and overdensities, globular clusters, and dwarf galaxies. After having 'Galactic and extragalactic astrophysics' classes with Prof. Paula Coelho and reading Cris Chiappini's article on the formation of our Galaxy still as an undergrad, I became fascinated by how we can learn about galaxy evolution using the Milky Way and its satellites as nearby laboratories.

For the 2022/23 academic year, I stayed at University of Chicago working with Prof. Alex Ji.

I was born and raised in São Paulo, which is probably why I think Chicago is small. Yes, I do like football, but my true love is carnaval. I’m also a really big enthusiast of Brazilian modern music. Checkout my Spotify for some of my favorite artists. (:

Also, I’ve recently fallen in love with NYC. Sorry Chicago, but you truly are too small for me.
