CV Lattes

Pessoa Física  (Institutional affiliation for the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Possesses degree in Physics (IFUSP - 2000), PhD (IAGUSP - 2005) and Post-Doctorate (IAG-USP (2005-2006) and SOAR (2008)) in Astronomy, which were obtained in the related programs at the Universidade de Sao Paulo (USP). Between November 2006 and December 2007, he worked as Resident Astronomer at the Southern Astrophysics Research Telescope (SOAR - Cerro Pacho - Chile). Besides the work in the observatory, he developed several research projects related to the studies of Galactic regions presenting massive star formation. In 2009 through public tender, he got a position as Full Professor (RDIDP - 44 hours / week) at the Astronomy Group of the Department of Physics of the Universidad de La Serena (Chile). In addition to research activities, he teaches Physics and Astronomy at both undergraduate and graduate programs of the Universidad de La Serena (ULS). Parallel to the research and teaching, between November 2009 and December 2010, he was in charge (hired by the board of the Astronomy program "Comisión Nacional de Investigación, Ciencia y Tecnologia" - CONICYT) Chilean observations with the APEX radio-telescope installed on the plateau of Schajnantor (Atacama - Chile), the same site of the ALMA interferometer. Since the year 2011 he has been leading the Group of Astronomy of the Universidad de La Serena (GAULS -, and in 2013 succeeded in implementing the Undergraduate and Graduate programs of Astronomy of ULS. The graduate program is currently offered at Masters level, which Alexandre is the current director. Throughout his career he has been devoted mainly to study the issues related to the Galaxy and its Interstellar Medium. This has been done through the study, discovery and characterization of star clusters, young massive stars (eg OB stars, Wolf-Rayet, LBV's, etc.), and stellar objects still in its pre-main sequence early-stages (MYSO's, eg YSO's T-Tauris, etc). For these purposes, he used (besides the databases of ESO, LNA, CTIO, etc.) mainly observational facilities installed in Chile, with emphasis on photometry, spectroscopy and polarimetry at optical and near infrared wavelengths.
