Graduated in computing with a master’s and doctorate in environmental sciences. She was a visiting researcher at Wageningen University, Wageningen, Netherlands, from 2011-2012, working with the carbon and water footprint of agro-industrial products. She is a researcher at the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation, in the area of environmental impact assessment of agro-industrial technologies, and a professor at the Postgraduate Program in Natural Resources at the State University of Ceará, in the same area. He has experience in the development and application of environmental impact assessment models, with an emphasis on life cycle assessment (LCA), in the process of technological development and innovation. It has applied these models in the evaluation of agro-industrial processes and products during their development, aiming to reduce impacts before the technology transfer stage to society. It has evaluated and contributed to the improvement of agricultural processes (tropical fruits) and bioproducts from agro-industrial residues (eg, cellulose nanocrystals, biopolymeric films, bacterial cellulose, panels, and gelatin).
