- Research Grants
I am Bachelor in Molecular Sciences (2005) at University of São Paulo, Brazil. I also have the Master (2008) and Ph.D. (2012) degrees in Astrophysics at Institute of Astronomy, Geophysics and Atmospheric Sciences of University of São Paulo. During the Ph.D. I spend one year at Kapteyn Astronomical Institute in Groningen, The Netherlands. My main research field is High Energy Astrophysics (X-rays) and Physics and Astrophysics of Compact Objects. In parallel, I do some research in Astrobiology. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Neutron stars are extreme objects in the universe. Their birth is marked by the death of a star with mass between 8 and 25 solar masses in a cataclysmic explosive event, releasing 10^53 erg of energy and can suppress the brightness of an entire galaxy. After the contraction of the iron core of the progenitor, the remnant is a neutron star with 1.4 solar masses and 10 km of radius, which...
The main goal of this research project is to achieve expertise in numerical methods to study and simulate in full general relativity high-energy astrophysical phenomena relative to neutron stars in X-ray binary systems. This will lead to a better understanding of the accretion flows onto the compact star and potentially, a new way to constrain its properties and to learn about its equat...
