I am currently a doctorate student at University of São Paulo, Piracicaba. I have investigated what are the effective environmental sustainability indicators of the land use changes resultants from sugarcane and other agroenergy crops expansion in Brazilian Cerrado biome, with a special focus on soil carbon dynamics and soil invertebrates biodiversity. The main objective of my researches is to promote field measurements to track changes of these environmental sustainability indicators in the landscape scale, and to propose a way of integrating the different sustainability indicators, usually treated individually.
