I am based in São Paulo and have been managing the operation of NHC’s Brazil branch since 2013. My main interests include river engineering, river hydraulics, and hydrology, and I have been leading a variety of high-profile hydrotechnical projects and studies in Brazil and other countries in Latin America. One recent example was to provide hydrotechnical support and peer-review for river restoration and environmental remediation for the Fundão tailings dam failure in Minas Gerais, Brazil. At NHC, I have the opportunity to work with intelligent and experienced professionals on interesting and challenging water resource projects. Away from work, I enjoy fishing, soccer, and travelling.
