Deep Convection Invigoration in Amazônia

Writing about a new site and a new instrument at the ATTO Tower

I had the amazing opportunity to write (very informally) about Campina and the MIRA-35C cloud radar installed there this year in the ATTO HIGH-TECH blog in the project website. I’m currently the data mentor of this radar.

Organizing my life: From '3' to '3+ in one'

I’m a big fan of productivity tools - almost addicted to it, I must say. I’ve been using OneNote (moved from Evernote because of their several limitations in the free plan) since my undergrad to organize my various notes on classes, seminars, and research.

Microfísica, Cinemática e Atividade Elétrica de Tempestades que geraram Granizo durante o Projeto SOS-CHUVA

Writing the PhD project

After finishing my Masters dissertation, it took me several (painful) months to define what I was going to do during my PhD. The main idea was to explore a different region of Brazil (Amazônia) and its complex interaction between clouds, aerosols and land use.

Deep Convection Invigoration in Amazonia: Observations and Comparison with Satellite Estimates

NOAA/NASA Satellite Meteorology Summer Workshop

Between July 8th and 19th 2019, I had the amazing opportunity to participate in the first Satellite Meteorology Summer Workshop hosted at CIRA (Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere) in Fort Collins, Colorado (USA).


The SOS-CHUVA project developed research in thunderstorm nowcasting in the Metropolitan Region of Campinas based on acquired knowledge during CHUVA Project. I help to coordinate a hail detection network installed for the first time in the region.

Microphysics, Kinematics and Electrification in Hail Producing Tropical Storms during SOS-CHUVA Project

This dissertation analyzed hail producing storms on the Metropolitan Region of Campinas to identify key factors for hailfall occurrence. For the first time, a hail detection network installed in the region allowed the identification and …

The Influence of Hail on Severe Storms Electrification

Two hailstorms that occurred in March 2017 and November 2017 were analyzed using weather radar measurements from FCTH, lightning occurrence from BrasilDAT and a hailpad network deployed during SOS-CHUVA Project in the Metropolitan Region of Campinas. …
