About Me

Depois de passar 7 enriquecedores anos na Bélgica, recentemente embarquei em um novo capítulo ao retornar às minhas raízes no Brasil. Munido de um Ph.D. em engenharia química e uma riqueza de experiência internacional, estou atualmente em um ano sabático no Brasil, ansioso para me reconectar com a rica cultura brasileira que amo tanto.

After spending 7 enriching years in Belgium, I have recently embarked on a new chapter by returning to my roots in Brazil. Armed with a Ph.D. in chemical engineering and a wealth of international experience, I am currently on sabbatical in Brazil, eager to reconnect to the very rich brazilian culture wich I love.

Music, Movies, and Books

Eu adoro música brasileira. Todos os gêneros, mas principalmente MPB, samba, pagode e forró. Aliás, danço forró hehe
Gosto de filmes artísticos. Dos diretores brasileiros gosto do Kleber Mendonça, Wagner Moura, Lázaro Ramos, Jorge Furtado, Glauber Rocha... e dos internacionais gosto dos antigos: nouvelle vague e neorealismo, e dos novos Jordan Peele, Bong Joon-ho...

Teach, Learn, Share

Conhecimento não vale de nada se não for compartilhado

Knowledge is worthless if not shared
