Associate professor at the Federal University of Paraná in the area of structures in the civil construction department (2012), Postgraduate Program in Civil Engineering permanent professor, and member of CESEC/UFPR, Center for Civil Engineering Studies. Graduated in Civil Engineering from the Federal University of Paraná (2004), master from the Postgraduate Program in Civil Engineering from the Federal University of Santa Catarina (2007), and doctor in Numerical Methods in Engineering from the Postgraduate Program in Numerical Methods in Engineering from the Federal University of Paraná (2011). He teaches finite elements, scientific computing, concrete structures design, and steel structures design with his material (https://argenta-ma.github.io/). He has professional experience working in the area of Civil Engineering, with emphasis on Structures, mainly on the following topics: structural engineering, numerical modeling, computational mechanics, computer simulations, fluid-structure interaction, structural dynamics, simulations of the musculoskeletal system, three-dimensional reconstruction of tomography, projects of reinforced concrete and steel structures. He currently researches on artificial intelligence for solutions in civil engineering, covering structural optimization, arrangement of materials, design of structural parts, and evaluation of specific non-traditional geometries, which can respond satisfactorily to the analyzed problems; computational simulation of fluid-structure interaction with the Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) coupled with the Finite Element Method (FEM) to determine the state of stress and deformation of the solid structure that interacts with the fluid; explicit dynamic simulations with strong nonlinearities with the application of the material point method, for rupture and fracture analysis in dynamically loaded brittle composites; beams and plates review of base theories and evolution for the third order.
