I got my degree in physic from Universidade de São Paulo (2004), a master's in physic from Universidade de São Paulo (2006), and a doctorate in physic also from Universidade de São Paulo (2011). I did a post-doc at the Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik (MPI). I have experience in experimental nuclear physics, acting on the following subjects: particle accelerators, applied physics with particle accelerators and beam diagnostics. I also develop instrumentation for high-energy particle physics, in particular developing micro-patterned gaseous detectors, as a member of the ALICE experiment and RD51 at the CERN.

We propose an alternative route to the conventional production of Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) type detectors used in nuclear and particle physics for radiation detection. Currently such detectors, as used at CERN for example, are produced by lithography and chemical etching. Such a method limits geometric variations of the devices and is relatively slow in the production of modified d...
The invention of micropatterned gaseous detectors has triggered a number of researches and developments in a new generation of gaseous detectors. One particular model has attracted much attention from several research groups: the Gaseous Electron Multiplier (GEM). This technology enables the development of unprecedented spatial resolution detectors capable of high rates of events, as we...
