Systematics, morphology and floristics of angiosperms.
Graduated in Biology with a Master’s degree from the Museu Nacional (Brazil) in 1994 and a Doctorate degree from the University of São Paulo (Brazil) in 2003, both in Botany (taxonomy). During his studies, part of the research was made at Kew Gardens (England) and The New York Botanical Garden (USA).
Systematics of Asteraceae, Theory of Systematics, History and Philosophy of Science.
Graduated in Pharmacy from University of Lille II (France), a Master's degree from University of Jussieu (Paris VI) (France) in "Biodiversity: genetics, history and mecanisms of Evolution" in 2004 and a Doctorate degree in Botany from University of Sao Paulo (Brazil) in 2011. My research focuses on Systematics of Asteraceae (especially Vernonieae, Heliantheae and Gnaphalieae tribes), Theory of Systematics (three-items analysis), History and Philosophy of Science (related to classification and homology, but also Teofrasto). My guiding principle is: what is said frequently matters less than what enables us to say it.
