Birthplace: Brazil

Oswaldo Baffa Filho received his Bachelor's degree in Physics (1976), at the Institute of Physics and Chemistry of São Carlos (IFQSC) at the University of São Paulo (USP), where he also completed his master's degree (1980) and doctorate (1984) in Applied Physics (Molecular Biophysics). Since then he has worked in interdisciplinary projects at the interface of the areas of biophysics and medical physics. Dosimetry and Electron Spin Resonance Dating (ESR), Biomagnetism and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) have been areas of interest. Since graduation, he has been working in undergraduate and graduate teaching activities and is responsible for structuring and teaching various disciplines. He was one of the creators of the Postgraduate program in Physics Applied to Medicine and Biology and of the undergraduate program in Medical Physics at FFCLRP-USP. In 1981, he joined the Department of Physics and Mathematics, current Department of Physics, Faculty of Philosophy, Sciences and Letters of Ribeirão Preto (FFCLRP), University of São Paulo as assistant professor where he was promoted to full professor in 1996. He completed an internship Postdoctoral fellowship (1986-1988) at the Department of Medical Physics, University of Wisconsin-Madison, with the support of the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, which was very important for the creation of a research group on biomagnetism. This group gained national and international recognition with several pioneering works in magnetism applied to the study of the gastrointestinal system. Baffa maintains a long-standing collaboration with the Biomagnetism Laboratory of the UW-Madison Medical Physics Department where he was appointed as a Visiting Professor until 2018. His research interests in the early times were focused primarily on Biophysics, investigating the structural aspects of hemoproteins. Later he has been dedicating more efforts to the area of medical physics, especially with works in biomagnetism, ESR for dosimetry and dating, magnetic resonance (MRI) for dosimetry, spectroscopy (MRS), and functional magnetic resonance imaging FMRI), among other applications. The ESR dating method has applied to several Brazilian archaeological sites, such as Pedra Furada in São Raimundo Nonato, Piauí. He was one of the coordinators of the CINAPCE Project, FAPESP, for the area of Neurosciences. He was Deputy Director and Director of the Faculty of Philosophy, Sciences and Letters of Ribeirão Preto-USP FFCLRP, member of the university council of USP, member of the Council of the Museum of Archeology and Ethnology (MAE-USP), department head, committee chair, Vice president of the Editorial Board of Revista USP, president of the Medical Physics Area Commission of the Brazilian Society of Physics and participant of other associations. He was lecturer of the College on Medical Physics (1988) and the College on Advanced Techniques in Archeology and Conservation of Works of Art (1994) of the International Center for Theoretical Physics-Trieste, Italy. Has visited several scientific institutions in Brazil and abroad conducting seminars and scientific exchange. He has received students from Latin America and other countries for internships at his laboratories. He participated and organized several national and international scientific events. Baffa was a Fellow of the Fulbright Program (2015). Participated in several evaluation committees of CNPq, FAPESP, CAPES and the State Board of Education. He is a reviewer of several international journals and a member of the editorial board of Biomedical Physics and Engineering Express (BPEX) and the International Advisory Board of Physics in Medicine and Biology. He is a member of the Brazilian Society of Physics and the Brazilian Association of Medical Physics. He is currently president of the Strategic Council of the Technological Park of Ribeirão Preto, representative of the titular professors in the University Council and member of CNPq Advisory Committee.
