I grew up in Itu, Sao Paulo, Brazil where I was primarily educated at the secondary school Prof. Rogerio Lazaro Toccheton. After that I attended high school at Colegio Terras where I have fond memories of some of great teachers I had at that time in special teachers Zeze, Gogo e Chico.
I did my undergraduate degree at UNESP (Sao Paulo State University), I studied mathematics, with interests also in physics and philosophy. I graduated with a B.A. in mathematics with the class of 2007.
After UNESP, I became a PhD student at the University of Bristol, where I was funded by a ORS and a University research scholarship. In 2012 I received my PhD, with a thesis advised by Professor Jon Keating and Dr. Nina Snaith on $L$-functions in function fields and random matrix theory.
In 2012-2013 I was a postdoctoral fellow at the ICERM - Brown University for the special year on automorphic forms, combinatorial representation theory and multiple Dirichlet series, funded by the ICERM and a National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellowship.
In 2013-2014 I was a Hodge fellow at the Institut des Hautes Etudes Scientifiques (IHES) in France, funded by an EPSRC fellowship and the IHES.
During 2014-2016 I was a Senior Researcher in Number Theory at the University of Oxford, funded by an EPSRC grant of Prof. Andrew Wiles. At present, I am a Lecturer in Pure Mathematics at the University of Exeter.
I am married to Carolina Andrade and we have a beautiful baby, Jonathan.
