I am gay and I am a professor of botany and science museum director in southern Brazil.//
Hello, I am a Botanist from Southern Brazil, and I am currently Professor at the Federal University of Pelotas, where I also direct the Science Museum. I am married to another Scientist and our students feel comfortable and safe when working in our labs. We always look for diversity when selecting new fellows, but not limiting our teams only on LGBTQ+ researchers to promote the equality and a pleasant environment for us all. When I was an undergrad student at the same University, I didn’t have the healthy space that I see and promote today, and I am really happy to see how it made great progress during the last years.
