Research interests

My research focusses on using radiocarbon as a proxy for understanding the carbon cycle dynamics. As a PhD candidate in the ATTO (Amazon Tall Tower Observatory) project, I couple mathematical tools as the compartmental system modelling with radiocarbon measurements on diverse biological materials.
