Before the University, I went to Germany as a High School Exchange Student. At that time I thought about learning architecture, I was fascinated by the old buildings in Europe, but soon I realized that maybe it wasn´t the right course for me. I decided than to attend the Product Design course, at Belas Artes University, in São Paulo. The course was very cool! It was then that I became very interested in the ergonomics area, so I wanted to do my masters in this area.
My master´s study is about aircraft cabin and people with special needs. After the master, I started to teach ergonomics at a private University. For my PhD I wanted to keep my studies in this area, but focusing in UCD.
