Who I am and what I do

“...[Fourier] had the opinion that the principal aim of mathematics was public utility and explanation of natural phenomena; but a philosopher like him should have known that the sole end of science is the honor of the human mind, and that under this title a question about numbers is worth as much as a question about the system of the world.”

—C.G.J. JACOBI, letter to Legendre, July 2, 1830, in Gesammelte Werke, Vol. I, Berlin (1881), p. 454.

I am a Full Professor at the Department of Mathematics of the University of São Paulo working in Differential Geometry. Here is the Web page of the seminar of our group.

I am also the Editor-in-Chief of the São Paulo Journal of Mathematical Sciences.

You can find a brief description of my research interests, a complete list of publications, and my curriculum vitae.

There is also information about the courses that I teach.

Finally, here is my list of personal links.
