Born and raised in Resende- RJ graduated in mechanical engineering at Fluminense Federal University (UFF [1]) in Volta Redonda – RJ, with a master’s degree in mechanical engineering at São Paulo State University (Unesp[2]) Guaratinguetá – SP. Nowadays I`m a doctoral student in mechanical engineering at Unesp. In Unesp I work with materials characterization and design equipment for materials processing, with a focus on low-cost types of equipment for research and schools.
