About me

I hold a bachelor's degree and a Master´s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Federal University of Uberlândia/UFU (1983 and 1988). I hold also a Master's Degree in Applied Mathematics (1993) and PhD in Engineering (1995) from Brown University. In 2002-2003, I went to Barcelona/Spain for Post-Doctoral stay at CIMNE / Quantech. I was a professor at the School of Mechanical Engineering/UFU from July 1987 to March 2017. I am currently a Volunteer Professor at the Federal University of Uberlândia/UFU. I have experience in Mechanical Engineering, with emphasis on Mechanics of Solid, Elastic and Plastic Bodies, working mainly on the following topics: Simulation of  forming processes and  contact mechanics, finite elements simulations, stress and strain analysis and biomechanics. I am a member of the CIMNE Classroom  Network (Agreement with the International Center for Numerical Methods in Enginery / UPC / Spain) since 2004, and I am  the Coordinator of the FEMEC-CIMNE Classroom that houses the activities of this agreement. From June of 2006 to December of 2008 I acted as Director of Intellectual Property and Innovation of UFU. I participated as professor of the Graduation Program in Mechanical Engineering/FEMEC/UFU since 1996.
