 Hello!

I am a brazilian civil engineer who is doing a research about Fracture Mechanics of High Performance Concrete at the Laboratory of Structures and Structural Materials (LEM) of Escola Politécnica da Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil. This research is the essence of my doctoral thesis, which has been developed since the beginning of 1998. Well, the research is still in the initial phase, although the main goals are well defined. You may see some information about it in the Research section.



I was born in Belém, state of Pará, Brazil, on Sept 6th, 1971. I took my undergraduate course (Civil Engineering) at Pará Federal University, between 1989 and 1994. After that, I moved to Sao Paulo, where I got my Master degree in Structural Engineering at Politechnic School of the University of Sao Paulo, on Dec 1997. Since then, I have been working on my doctoral thesis.
