I hold a Bachelor Degree in Economics from the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG, Brazil) and a Master of Science Degree in Climate Change and International Development from the University of East Anglia (UEA, United Kingdom). I was the recipient of a Chevening Scholarship, awarded by the British Government.
As a climate change consultant at WayCarbon, I am in charge of managing and executing greenhouse gas emissions reduction projects under the Clean Development Mechanism and the Verified Carbon Standard since 2011. I have expertise in renewable energy projects, such as wind, hydro and photovoltaic power plants, as well as biofuels, having developed around 20 projects for companies belonging to the Brazilian energy sector. My position has also allowed me to provide support to Brazilian companies from the energy and infrastructure sectors concerning their climate change policies.
I also develop assessments of economic instruments for the mitigation of climate change, especially cap-and- trade schemes. I have taken several courses on climate change and environment, among which a training course on greenhouse gases emissions trading schemes for developing countries, promoted by the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP) in Costa Rica and a course promoted by the Brazilian Ministry of Economy and by the World Bank on the application of the Marginal Abatement Cost Tool (MACTool), a software for the development of marginal abatement cost curves and to calculate carbon break even prices.
