Introduction
My Ph.D. research focuses on the seaweed cultivation and optimization of at sea, using seaweed as a solution for sustainable aquaculture. My main interest is applying aquaculture as a means to minimizes impacts on the environment and increase its efficiency in the use of resources.

Article
Full-text available
Antioxidant potential, carbohydrate content, ash, minerals, proteins, and amino acids of Kappaphycus alvarezii farmed along the São Paulo coast, Brazil, were evaluated to support the best use of four strains and new applications with added value. Ash content ranged from 25.60 to 11.65%. Mineral contents varied from 10,130.90 ± 1,613.78 mg (100 g)⁻¹...
Article
Kappaphycus alvarezii was introduced for mariculture purposes on the coast of São Paulo, southeast of Brazil, in 1995, and since then an experimental pilot cultivation has been maintained. Since it is an exotic species, the dispersion of thallus fragments, presence of reproductive structures and recruitment from spores were monitored bimonthly from...

Sargassum species form extensive benthic beds in tropical and subtropical low intertidal and subtidal zones, acting as important drivers for marine community structure. Temperature, as one of the most important abiotic factor, affects seaweed performance and triggers changes in metabolic responses; therefore, laboratory experiments involving temper...
Article
Kappaphycus alvarezii is one of the most farmed algae globally. It is used almost exclusively for the carrageenan industry, although there is increasing interest in its biotechnological application as a natural product with biological properties. This cultivated species produces different strains with distinct chemical and physiological properties....

Seaweeds are a source of antioxidants and pigments, which can be used as functional ingredients for food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and industrial applications. As fresh seaweed has a large amount of water, it usually goes through a drying process in order to be commercialized, which facilitates transportation and storage and also increases shelf t...
Article

Practices of aquaculture production may generate potential pollutants that cause environmental pressure. In this context, a recommendation to mitigate the environmental impacts caused by aquaculture waste would be using and recycling such nutrients, considered as “pollutants,” in an eco-efficient way, with approaches such as the integrated multi-tr...

Macroalgae must be able to survive in conditions of different light intensities with no damage to their physiological performance or vital processes. Irradiance can stimulate the biosynthesis of certain photoprotective compounds of biotechnological interest, such as pigments and proteins. Pterocladiella capillacea is a shade-grown alga, which play...
