Birthplace: Brazil

M.A.Cotta graduated (B.Sc. in Physics,1984), with M.Sc. (1987) and Ph.D. (1991) in Physics, at the University of Campinas. She worked as a postdoctoral fellow at AT & T Bell Laboratories (Murray Hill, USA, 1991-1993). She is currently full professor (MS6), at the Gleb Wataghin Institute of Physics, University of Campinas. She is also a member of the Brazilian Materials Research Society scientific board (2016-2018) and associate editor of the journal ACS Applied Nano Materials. Her research projects explore the areas of Materials Science and Biological Physics, with focus on the study of advanced semiconductor nanomaterials, from synthesis to biosensor fabrication, as well as applications of optical, electron and scanning probe microscopy to basic investigations on biomaterials and biological systems.

Strength in union

Published in October 20, 2016 - Pesquisa FAPESP. Physicists and biologists investigate how Xylella fastidiosa bacteria assemble into biofilms. In the video produced by Pesquisa Fapesp, physicists Mônica Cotta and Carlos Lenz Cesar from the University of Campinas (Unicamp), and biologist Alessandra de Souza, researcher at the Sylvio Moreira Citriculture Center of the Campinas Institute of Agronomy (IAC), revisit the collaborative process leading to the description of this biofilm. The disease it causes endangers plants of economic importance, such as orange and olive trees.
