Gilmar was born and raised in Brazil. He received his B.S. and M.S. in chemistry from the Federal University of Sao Carlos under the supervision of Prof. Alcindo dos Santos. Gilmar completed his PhD under the supervision of Dr. Ronaldo Pilli at the University of Campinas and Dr. Peter Wipf at the University of Pittsburgh (as an exchange student). During his doctoral studies he developed methods to synthesize Stemona alkaloids. In 2015 he started as a posdoctoral fellow at the University of Campinas, aiming to develop an asymmetric Mannich reaction catalyzed by water soluble chiral lanthanide complexes. Gilmar then joined the Krische group in September 2017, and is currently developing new synthetic methodologies for the construction of C-C bonds.
