Curriculum Vitae: Lattes

Professor at University of ABC (UFABC) since 2010; nowadays, is vice-coordinator of the graduation course of Biomedical Engineering of UFABC and vice-coordinator of Animals Ethical Comitee of UFABC. I have experience in biophotonics, mainly with the development and applications of laser irradiation and biomedical optics for prevention, diagnosis and therapeutics in life sciences, with emphasis in Dentistry.
