Matheus is a PhD student in the Forest Ecology and Conservation group within the Plant Sciences department at the University of Cambridge. His research uses remote sensing and field surveys to understand how global changes affect forests in the temperate and tropical regions. His current project revolves around the use of LiDAR and spectroscopy to investigate how climate change combined with oil palm expansion in Borneo affect tree canopies and ecosystem functioning.

He majored in Forest Engineering in the University of Lavras, Brazil, obtained a master's degree in Forest Management at the University of São Paulo, Brazil, and completed his studies in the Biometric and Spatial Analysis Lab at the University of California, Berkeley, as graduate scholar.
