Hi there, welcome!

I’m a final-year PhD candidate in Astronomy at Universidade de São Paulo (USP) in Brasil with Prof. Silvia Rossi. I also spent a whole year at University of Chicago with Prof. Alex Ji. My research focuses on Galactic Archaeology, mostly on the Milky Way’s halo, including metal-poor stars, stellar streams, 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 as an undergrad, I became fascinated by how we can learn about galaxy evolution using the Milky Way and its satellites as nearby laboratories.

Starting October 2024, I will be a KICP Postdoctoral Fellow at UChicago!

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