Bacharel in physics from IF-USP. Master degree in astronomy from IAG-USP. Developing research in black holes and accretion disk theory with numerical simulations. Mainly interested in AGN's winds and outflows. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
The nature of outflows from Supermassive Black Holes (SMBHs) and their impact on the host galaxies are an unresolved question in Black Hole (BH) physics. In order to shed light upon this issue, this project aims at investigating in a self-consistent way the winds produced by SMBHs fed at low and high mass accretion rates. We will use the tools of global, multidimensional MHD simulations...
Quiescent galaxies with little or no ongoing star formation dominate the population of galaxies with masses above 2E10 Msun in the local universe. Once star formation has been shut down in a possible quasar phase, energy feedback in the form of outflows from a supermassive black hole (SMBH) accreting at a low rate is one of the leading candidates for heating up or removing gas accreted...
NGC 3115 is the nearest elliptical galaxy hosting a >1E9 solar masses black hole and is also a low-luminosity active galactic nucleus (LLAGN). X-ray observations of this LLAGN provide us with spatially resolved spectral information on the hot gas within the sphere of gravitational influence of the supermassive black hole (SMBH). These observations make NGC 3115 one of the best testbeds ...
