I work at the Institute of Chemistry, Universidade Estadual Paulista, teaching and researching on Natural Products Chemistry. Our main focus is on bioactive compounds - antifungal, trypanocide, antitumoral, chemopreventive - from Brazilian plants.

As for IYC 2011, we plan several activities for a closer contact of graduate and undergraduate students with those from primary/secondary school and reinforce the many positive aspects of Chemistry related to health, environment, comfort etc.
