He holds a bachelor's degree from Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade Nova de Lisboa - FCT/UNL (2010) in Physics Engineering, which is revalidated by Universidade Federal de Goiás, a master's degree from the FCT/UNL (2012) in Physics Engineering, and a doctoral degree from Universidade Federal de Sergipe (2017). He also joined a postdoctoral program at Yale University (2018-2020), as well as, a postdoctoral at the Photonics Group at Universidade de São Paulo (Instituto de Física de São Carlos). Since 2013, Luis has been doing research in the science field of Optics and Photonics. Operating lasers and optical parametric oscillators/amplifiers with different temporal regimes (ns, ps, and fs), Luis have gained experience in assembly a series of optical setups from scratch. He also has experience with continuous-wave light-sources, such as Nd-YAG and He-Ne lasers, and light-emitting diodes. Data analysis from linear and nonlinear optical spectroscopy experiments is also one of his skills. Luis also uses the Gaussian software package to predict some of the linear and nonlinear optical properties of organic molecules. By combining experimental and theoretical results, he can interpret the data analysis better. During his two years at Yale University, as a Postdoctoral Associate, he worked on a project funded by the United States Department of Homeland Security and the US National Nuclear Security Administration National. His role in this project was to help improve the optical reading of overheated emulsion detectors, as well as to develop new photonic devices for radiophotoluminescence and optically stimulated luminescence materials. Luis also worked at the Photonics group of the São Carlos Institute of Physics - University of São Paulo, as a postdoctoral research associate (FAPESP). The primary goal of his research was in the field of nonlinear optics. At the present, Luis is a Professor ( Adjunto Classe-A ) at Federal University of Goiás. His main research activity is the field of Optics & Photonics. He is also a peer reviewer of the following international scientific journals: Photonics, Sensors, Biosensors, Applied Physics A, Applied Physics B, Animals, Entropy, Applied Sciences, Coatings, and Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology D.
