Graduated in Physics at Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (1999), Ph.D. in Theoretical Physic from Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (2004), and posdoc at the Mathematical Physics Department in University of São Paulo (USP). Visiting professor in the math department of Universidade Federal do ABC in 2008, and at the Indiana University in Bloomington, IN, USA, during the year 2018. Currently, an Associate Professor at Universidade Federal do ABC, in Santo André, SP, Brazil. Working mainly in theoretial aspects of quantum field theory and gravity: Lorentz symmetry violations, supersymmetry, effective potential and dynamical symmetry breaking, spacetime noncommutativity. I am also interested in general topics like: quantum gravity, mathematical physics, and computational physics. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)

Research grants

- Symmetries and physics beyond the standard model, AP.R
### Abstract

This research project is divided into two main lines, unified in exploring the role of symmetry and possible mechanisms for breaking such symmetries in physics of elementary interactions. The first line investigates proposed modifications and/or violations of the relativistic symmetry, covering the theoretical consistency of these proposals and their possible phenomenological consequenc...

- Lorentz symmetry breaking, supersymmetry and pseudo-escalars, BP.DR
### Abstract

This research plan for a PhD in physics aims at studying various aspects of field theories contained pseudo-escalars fields like the axion, in the context of other proposals for Standard Model Extensions, namely, models with violations of Lorentz Symmetry and Supersymmetry. The axion is a particle proposed to solve some problems of the Standard Model, which is also a candidate for Dark ...

- Twisted supersymmetric quantum field theories, BP.MS
### Abstract

The noncommutativity of spacetime has been proposed as a tentative to incorporate in quantum mechanics and quantum field theories some properties that must be included in a consistent quantum gravity theory. One nontrivial aspect of such scenario is the fate of spacetime symmetries. Some of the most popular proposals for noncommutative spacetimes explicitly violate Lorentz invariance. O...

- Non minimal Lorentz Violation in gauge theories and gravity, BE.PQ
### Abstract

The search of small deviations from Lorentz symmetry as a possible window into new physics at very high energies has been a very active field of theoretical and experimental research in the past decades. The Standard Model Extension (SME) is an effective field theory that includes in the Standard Model (SM) and the Einstein-Hilbert actions all operators that violate Lorentz symmetry, wh...
