I am a fifth-year graduate student in the Mathematics Department at the University of Pennsylvania and I expect to graduate in May 2021. My advisor is Professor Antonella Grassi and my current research focuses on the geometry of genus one fibrations.

Born and raised in Brazil, before coming to Penn I completed a B.Sc. and a M.Sc. ( Master’s Thesis ) degree in Mathematics at the Federal University of ParanĂ¡ (UFPR) in Curitiba.

The picture in this webpage was taken last year in Ouro Preto, Minas Gerais (before the pandemic).
