I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Space Telescope Science Institute working with the STIS instrument team of the Hubble Space Telescope. I was born in Brazil and my pronouns are he/him/his.
My main research topic is the characterization of extra-solar planets and their atmospheres. I am also interested in solving problems related to the observation and description of stellar atmospheres and developing scientific software for the astronomical community. The main instruments I use in my research are high-resolution and/or space-based spectrographs.
My talks on public record:
- 5th NUVA Workshop, 27 October 2020, virtual conference
- SAG21 Community Symposium, 9 March 2021, virtual conference
- Canal da SAB, live chat/interview (in Portuguese)
- ExoExplorers program 2022, 18 February 2022, virtual seminar

Occasionally I write software in Python and scripts for astronomical research. Here are some that I think could be useful for you:
