Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Instituto de Física (IF)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Alexandre Suaide is Professor at the Institute of Physics of the University of São Paulo and conducts research in the field of heavy nucleus collisions at relativistic energies, which allow the study of matter under extreme temperature conditions, where normal nuclear matter undergoes a phase transition to a state where quarks and gluons are deconfined. This state is called quark-gluon plasma and is believed to be the state in which the Universe existed a few microseconds after the Big Bang. In particular, he studies aspects of this plasma involving the production of particle jets and heavy quarks (charm and bottom) and their interaction with this plasma. These studies are carried out through the STAR experiment at the Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collider (RHIC), located at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, USA, and the ALICE experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), located at CERN, Switzerland. Additionally, he conducts research in the areas of nuclear instrumentation for high-energy experiments, distributed computing (GRID), and the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques in areas related to biology, medicine, and sports.
