I am an Associate Professor (Professor Associado MS 5.1 com Livre Docência em Álgebra) at the Instituto de Matemática, Estatística e Computação Científica of the Universidade Estadual de Campinas and a member of the UNICAMP-CNPq Algebra Group.

I am also a Collaborator Member of the CEMAT Lisbon.

Before arriving here, I was at FlorenceCornell, CRM Barcelona, Virginia, Paris Sud 11 and CAUL Lisbon.

I am interested in questions of asymptotic, combinatorial and geometric group theory: decision problems, finiteness properties, subgroup classification, growth and dynamics in groups, such as piecewise-linear homeomorphism groups, Thompson groups, groups of diagrams, free groups, Baumslag-Solitar groups, surface groups, groups generated by automata, lamplighter groups, nilpotent groups and finite groups.
