Leonardo Andre Ambrosio


Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Escola de Engenharia de São Carlos (EESC)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

Leonardo A. Ambrosio received the B.Sc., M.Sc. and the Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from University of Campinas, School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Campinas, Brazil, in 2002, 2005 and 2009, respectively. Between 2009 and 2013 he was a postdoctoral Fellow with the Department of Microwaves and Optics at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Campinas (Unicamp), and developed part of his research at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA. His research interests include Photonics, light-scattering problems for optical trapping and manipulation, metamaterials and plasmonics for optical nano-circuits and microstructures light fields and modelling of non-diffracting beams envisioning applications in biomedical optics, telecommnications and atom guiding. His current research projects merge the aforementioned topics, with emphasis on microstructured beams and non-diffractive waves for trapping and micromanipulation of micro and nanometric particles (conception of new exotic beams for optical trapping and development of algorithms and applications for electromagnetic simulation in problems of light scattering). Recently, he started a line of research in brain-copmuter interfaces for entertainment, games and the metaverse. Link to MyCitations: (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
