I was born in Natal, Brazil, and grew up there before making my way to North America. Since I was a kid, I've always been curious about how things are made and the mysteries of the universe. Physics and chemistry were my passions during my childhood and teenage years. Eventually, I got my Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Calgary in Canada. While studying and doing an internship, I got to work on separating hydrocarbons and exploring different biochemical processes. In 2017, I completed my Master's degree in Chemical Engineering at the University of Calgary. My research project focused on the flow of different fluids in porous materials, using time-dependent injection schemes. Later on, I pursued my PhD at the University of Toronto. My doctoral work centered around designing and conducting high-throughput experiments and automating labs for environmental engineering, as well as creating computer models to understand how nanoparticles behave.


Now, as a Postdoc in the Abolhasani lab, I am focused on lab automation for flexible catalytic conversion of hydrocarbons into useful products. I'm very interested in how artificial intelligence can revolutionize material discovery and improve processes in the future.
