Work ExperienceI have been working since 1996 in UNDP's BRA 93/036 project "Elaboration of the National Policy to Control Desertification - PNCD". I have been involved in gathering and widespreading information concerning desertification, aiming the development of the brazilian policies in this matter. The divulgation of the problem throughout Brazil is one of the main objets of the project. The Internet was the chosen media which could provide, in a effective way, the wanted awareness of people. In this context, the PNCD developed the Desertification Information and Documentation Network - REDESERT. I have been working as the Webmaster of REDESERT's website ( and the Postmaster of the REDESERT's discussion list ( I am also a part of the University of Brasilia's "Projeto Fogo", which deals with fire research in cerrado since 1986. I am after my master degree in ecology, under the orientation of Prof. Heloisa Sinatora Miranda.
