Bachelor degree in Environmental Engineering, completed in January 2015 at the Federal University of Viçosa, with visiting period at the Van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences (2013). Masters of Science (MSc) in Environmental Sanitation at Ghent University, completed in July 2017. Master thesis focused on comparison of different electrode materials for sulfide oxidation and sulfur recovery from wastewater using electrochemical cells, developed at Cmet, Ghent. Worked in research and projects of sanitary and environmental engineering, with focus on the evaluation of surface water quality, new technologies for water and wastewater treatment and urban solid waste and civil construction waste management.
Since September 2015
Master thesis: Anode materials for sulfide oxidation in alkaline wastewater: a stability and activity performance comparison
Environmental Analyst and Research Assistant Intern
January 2014 --- December 2014
Environmental analyst, dealing with solid waste management in the construction industry. Worked in a project to study the feasibility and implementation of an industrial landfill for disposal of construction and demolition solid waste. Research assistant in a project to study the biodegradability and disposal of carcasses and poultry litter through the use of an aerobic bioreactor. The aim of the project was to ensure biosafety and minimization of environmental damage, as well as evaluate the use of the organic compost generated as a fertilizer in agriculture.
