Bachelor's at Physic from Universidade de São Paulo (1999), Master's at Physic from Universidade Estadual de Campinas (2003) and Doctorate at Physic from Universidade Estadual de Campinas (2008). Postdoctoral made at Universidade Federal do ABC from 2008 to 2010 and at the Universidade de São Paulo in the Instituto de Física de São Carlos between 2010 and 2013. Since August 2013 a professor at the Universidade de São Paulo at Escola de Engenharia de Lorena. Works on three fronts Search: The cosmic rays energies above 1EeV (Pierre Auger Observatory), energies between 10GeV and 100TeV (Cherenkov Telescope Array - CTA) and atmospheric monitoring. Has experience in Astronomy, focusing on Extragalactic Astroparticle Physics, acting on the following subjects: ultra high energy cosmic rays, extensive air showers, Pierre Auger Observatory, Cherenkov Telescope Array and Atmopheric Monitoring. Experience in computational tools as language C, C++, Python, Fortran, Perl, Awk, Shell Script, IDL, ROOT, CORSIKA, Mathematica and others. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
The Pierre Auger Observatory is a Collaboration that in the last 12 years have contributed to explain many issues about cosmic ray and particle physics for energies above 10^18 eV, but in this trajectory it have come across with many others open questions. This project intends to contribute strongly to the understanding of these issues in three specific ways: a) infer the mass compositi...
