I've become passionate about Chemistry early at 8th grade; this passion has shaped all my life and carrier, starting at the local Technical School, and moving up to University; I'm also married to a Chemist - what an explosive relationship!

Our two daughters thinks it's too much Chemistry in one house. They say they DON't want to follow us on our professions.

I work at 3M Company in Brasil and I've had various R&D experiences.

I've studied for a Master Degree and now I'm struggling to accomplish my PhD.

I've become very excited about the IYC and want to participate and be active as much as possible! Specially in transferring a little bit of this passion to the young people in my country, and to help improve the Chemistry reputation among general public.
