Senior Lecturer in Operations Management in the Operations and Information Management Department at Aston Business School, Aston University.
Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport UK. Member of the European Operations Management Association (EurOMA). Fellow of the Higher Education Academy UK.

My academic degrees comprise a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science (UFPB), MSc in Management (UFPB) and PhD in Management (Manchester University). After graduating in Computer Science, I worked in the Brazilian ICT industry for 11 years before moving into the academia.

My PhD research focused upon the applicability of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems in the government context. Since then I have been developing research on key areas of the value chain such as CRM, Operations and Supply Chain Management (SCM).

At Aston Business School I teach Operations Strategy, International Operations and Research Methods for undergraduates and postgraduates. My research at Aston focuses mainly on sustainability aspects of operations, logistics and supply chains, with particular emphasis on exploring the interface between the circular economy and the digital economy.
