My name is Luiz Fernando Castelhano and I am a Brazilian (with dual citizenship with Portugal) Chemical Engineer. I have graduated from the State University of Campinas in Brazil (http//www.unicamp.br/), a very prestigious University, highly ranked in most international rankings, including being top 15 in the World Young Universities (under than 50 years old - QS Top 50 ranking). Currently, I am in the process of studying for my Masters and PhD in chemical engineering, energy, biofuels and biotechnology. I have five years’ experience in teaching, coordinating, and preparing chemistry, science, math and chemical engineering materials for teaching (at elementary, high school and university level, including e-learning methods).
I developed my whole career on the academic path, through research and development, and teaching. In research, I have completed 4 projects within the universities of São Paulo and Campinas, two at an undergraduate level, and two at a post grad, besides that, I have completed 3 industrial traineeships in large chemical conglomerates in Europe – AkzoNobel (the Netherlands), StoraEnso and UPM (Finland), in total for about 7 years’ experience researching in diversified fields within Chemical Engineering - Biotechnology and Biofuels.
In teaching, I have several years’ experience, participating in different projects, teaching and coordinating chemistry as both a volunteer in community courses, and also in private companies and schools, in which I have coordinated, taught and created class materials including multimedia e-learning tools.
Regarding English language, my studies and experience abroad has built a strong foundation and I am completely fluent, I took the TOEIC – Test of English for International Communication and my score was 930 out of 990 and I took also the IELTS with a final score of 7.5 out of 9. I also hold a TEFL-TESOL (Teaching English as Foreign Language) course of 120 hours, completed in Phuket, Thailand. I spent several years studying and working throughout Europe and the United States. I am fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese and would be confident to work and teach in any of these languages.
