As a researcher, he coordinated an ERA-Net Smart Energy Systems project called Power-2-Transport and authored multiple publications on renewable hydrogen and synthetic methane production. He was also involved in teaching, supervision, and mentoring activities.
Leandro obtained his PhD degree from the University of Rostock in cooperation with the German Biomass Research Center (DBFZ) for his research on the topic of biogas production from sugarcane waste in Brazil. While working at the DBFZ, he was involved in research, development, and consultancy projects in Germany, Australia, Brazil, and Mexico. To date, he still collaborates with Brazilian academic partners on topics like bioresource recovery, biogas and renewable hydrogen production.
