A Bit About Me

I am interested in working in the areas of Engineering and Technology.

In high school I developed a series of scientific projects, I highlight an atmospheric probe equipped with telemetry and GPS, aiming to collect meteorological data and pictures of Santa Catarina’s region. The project had great repercussion in the media (newspaper, radio and TV) and allowed me to participate in science fairs, national technology shows and winning scientific awards. In the Graduation in Energy Engineering, I founded two teams that work with important research and extension projects in the Araranguá Campus of UFSC - the Quantum Team, a competition team in the robotics area, of which I am also the captain – and Plus Energy, a team that develops prototypes and technologies for systems for generating electricity from renewable sources. Based on my experience and skills to work in mechanics, electronics and programming, I also collaborate with other projects and researchers at the university. During the time I am at UFSC, I am often asked to represent it in interviews, lectures and institutional videos,I was a student representative of the Course Collegiate for two years, and I am currently the president of the Academic Center for Energy Engineering. Finally, I would like to highlight the development of volunteer activities, at the university and outside it, especially aimed at children and high school students.
