Mathematician Edson Sampaio began his career at the Federal University of Ceará, where, in addition to his master’s degree, he also earned a doctorate in mathematics. He was a postdoc at the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics in Bilbao, Spain. With a research focus on geometry, Edson investigates the geometric and metric properties of analytic sets.
Now a professor at the UFC, Edson is still part of the Topology and Singularities group. Outside the classroom, he devotes his free time entirely to his family, the part that, according to Edson, makes his life lighter and more enjoyable. Married to chemical analyst Syndel, the mathematician is also the father of Elis and Edson Jr. He loves a good barbecue with family and friends to the rhythm of an old forró and binge-watching series and anime.
