Rodrigo's research focuses on the study of the thermodynamics and kinetics of materials, including extended defects in metals (such as dislocations, grain boundaries, and surface steps), kinetics of shock-compressed silica, and the chemistry of hydrocarbons. He employs a range of computational techniques in his research, including atomistic simulation methods (molecular dynamics and free-energy calculations), quantum mechanical calculations (density functional theory and path-integral/ring-polymer molecular dynamics), and machine learning tools.

The objective of this Master Thesis project is the study, through the methods of computational physics, of thermodynamic and kinetic aspects of martensitic phase transitions in metallic alloys.In relation to thermodynamic properties we will be particularly interested in investigating the influence of the composition of alloys on the transition temperatures. This is achieved by using the...
This project proposes a Research Visit of my Master student, Rodrigo Freitas, to be realized at Stanford University under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Wei Cai, with the objective of completing part of the Master's Research Project entitled "Study of Martensitic Phase Transitions in Metallic Alloys" supported by Fapesp grant 2010/13902-4. The general objective of the visit is to enhance ...
