Passionate about learning and teaching, after 10 years working in the financial services industry, I returned to academic life in 2015 seeking happiness and opportunities to experience topics capable to improve our lives and the world for the next generations. In the academic year 2017/18, I was an invited researcher at the Ecodynamics Group of University of Siena (Italy) focusing on Environmental Indicators. I got my Master’s Degree in Ecology and Environment Engineering at the Faculty of Food Engineering at the University of Campinas (Brazil) in 2018. I am a Food Engineer (I graduated in 2004, still at University of Campinas, Brazil); I also graduated in People Management (2007–FGV/Brazil) and Business Administration (2010–INSPER/Brazil).
Emergy, Exergy and Life Cycle Assessment and their integration will be the methods used to evaluate performances, identify hotspots, suggest regenerative solutions and extend the value of resources over time applied to case studies in construction and demolition sectors, focusing on exchange and recovery of mineral and metallic resources in integrated industrial processes and systems of interest for the transition towards a Circular Economy in Naples’ area (Italy), also considering regional, country and continental levels. The goal is to design a mosaic of processes and industrial sectors capable of interacting, exchanging resources, consuming by-products and reducing environmental impacts, generating Circular Economy patterns through different scales.
