I received my Ph.D. in February 2009 from Uppsala University, Sweden. Before starting as faculty at CSUN, I was a Carl Sagan postdoctoral fellow at NASA-JPL/Caltech, and before that a postdoc at the American Museum of Natural History, in New York City. I was also a research assistant at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy (MPIA), in Heidelberg, Germany. Before my Ph.D. I worked as an observer. I was a research assistant at CTIO (La Serena, Chile) and ESO (Garching, Germany), as well as a summer intern at Space Telescope, in Baltimore. My undergrad is on Astronomy, from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.
