I have a degree in agricultural engineering from the Federal University of Goiás-UFG, a master`s degree in Agricultural Entomology from the Universidade Federal de Lavras-UFLA and Ph.d. in Agricultural Entomology Agronomy school ", ", Luiz de Queiroz-ESALQ/USP. I have experience in the area of agriculture, with emphasis on Agricultural Entomology. I developed the master project in the field of phytosanitary products selectivity for predators and Parasitoids and the PhD project in the area of arthropod pests resistance to tactical control, with emphasis on management of resistance to genetically modified plants expressing Bt Proteins in Brazil. Post-doctorate at the Universidade Federal de Goiás (UFG), in the year of 2011 to 2013. In 2014 was a substitute teacher in UFG in the disciplines of Entomology Principles and protection of plants for agriculture and Forestry. Currently, Professor at the higher teacher training level I-class in EA/UFG coordinating two projects related to the management of Helicoverpa armigera in Goiás: ", development and behavior of Helicoverpa armigera (Hübner) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in artificial and natural diets: basis for the integrated management of Prague ", and ", subsidies for the implementation of a management program of resistance of Helicoverpa armigera (Lepidoptera : Noctuidae) to insecticides in tomato plant culture in the State of Goias.
