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 computational 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.

This project aims to study the structural stability, the electronic and vibrational properties, as well as the transport properties, such as electrical conductivity, Seebeck coefficient and the contributions of electrons and phonons to the thermal conductivity of materials for thermoelectric applications, including: chalcogenide compounds IV-VI, SnSe and SnS, and V-VI, As2Se3 and As2S3,...
The proposition of this BEPE post-doc project concerns the ab initio investigation of thermoelectric transportproperties of two-dimensional materials and van der Waals heterostructures, formed by graphene, hexagonalboron nitride and transition metal dichalcogenides. The aim is the understanding of the scattering mechanismsof charge carriers and phonons in such systems, which may potenti...
