Birthplace: Brazil

Graduated (2007), Master (2010) and PhD (2015) in Physics from the São Carlos Institute of Physics - University of São Paulo and postdoctoral fellow at the Gleb Wataghin Institute of Physics - Unicamp and Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences - Harvard University. Has experience in condensed matter computational/theoretical physics, theoretical chemistry and materials science, mainly working in the following areas: development and implementation of computational codes for ab initio simulation of transport properties in materials mediated by electron-phonon, electron-plasmon and phonon-phonon couplings; and ab initio simulations of structural, electronic and reactivity properties of clusters, nanoparticles and transition metal surfaces. He is the main responsible for the implementation and development of the Turbo-EPW computational code, in collaboration with Prof. Efthimios Kaxiras (Harvard University) and Prof. Alex Antonelli (Unicamp). The code is based on dual interpolation method, drastically reducing the computational cost (reaching the order of 1000 times) of ab initio calculations, so far impractical for many materials, of different transport properties: thermoelectric (electrical conductivity, Seebeck coefficient, Lorenz function, thermal conductivity due to carriers, phonon drag effects and contribution of the electron-plasmon coupling); superconductivity (superconducting critical temperature as well as thermodynamic properties of the superconducting state through the Migdal-Èliashberg theory); phonon-assisted optical processes; renormalization of band structure due to temperature and non-adiabatic renormalization of phonon dispersion due to electron-phonon interaction.
